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 Colorado quilt block is obviously named for the state. It is made up entirely of half square triangles. Placement of the colours in the quilt block will determine the focus and interest in the pattern. It is yours to discover.

The sample quilt layouts are both designed using a side by side block setting. By adding sashing strips to one quilt, you get an entirely different look.
