|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 Cockney Star -- a four patch quilt block -- has lovely pinwheels for a fun quilt. By deciding to flip the direction of some of the pieces in the pinwheels, you can create some interesting quilt layouts. These two sample quilts illustrated below use standard quilt block settings for a final product -- a side by side quilt block layout or an on point setting of the blocks. Choose one of these or design your own.
