|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.
The two sample quilt layouts shown using the Clay's Choice quilt block are qute different, but use all the same components. The quilt blocks are separated by sashing in both cases, but the difference lies in whether the blocks are laid out side by side, or on point. Both the use of sashing strips and/or setting triangles (as in the "on point" layout) offer chances for additional pops of colour in your final quilt.
