BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Churn Dash - a Variation

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Churn Dash quilt block is also known as Monkey Wrench. The Monkey Wrench block was featured as one of the quilt blocks that helped slaves find the escape routes along the "Underground Railroad". So, it has some interesting history.

This variation adds some extra half square triangle pieces to the original 10" block, which is nice for those wanting to express a little more of their skills. However, this version is still a very easy block to make.

The two sample quilts illustrated both feature the quilt blocks on point but vary slightly as additional corners have been added to one version while sashing and extra blank blocks are features of the second quilt. All in all, there is no limit to your creativity for your own heirloom quilt.
