|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!
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.
