BLOCKS by SIZE 8" Quilt Blocks

Eight inch quilt blocks are commonly used in quilts that are made up of one block only and the parts are easily divisible by four. Also, by setting the blocks in different layouts, you can create many different new designs -- sometimes with just a simple rotation of the block. This is not to say that larger or smaller versions of the same quilt block cannot be used in your quilt. Once again, you are the designer.

Chisholm Trail - Variation

Sample Quilt Layouts


Both of the Chisholm Trail - Variation quilts shown below use sashing strips to separate the quilt blocks. This standard four patch quilt block is easy to sew and the resultant quilts can be created with ease as well. Your biggest challenge is selecting which quilt layout, (or one of your own) to choose to showcase these quilt blocks.
