BLOCKS by SIZE 7.5" Quilt Blocks

Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!

Christmas Basket

Sample Quilt Layouts


The directional nature of the Christmas Basket quilt block lends itself nicely to a whole array of possibilities for different quilt layouts. By rotating the blocks by 90 degree increments and/or placing in groupings of four blocks, unexpected secondary patterns can emerge. (Do you see some stars in the quilt on the left?)
