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.


Sample Quilt Layouts

The Colorado quilt block is an easy four patch featuring only half square triangle patches. By adding sashing strips and switching up the colours of the setting triangles you can create a dynamic quilt layout as illustrated on the left. The quilt layout on the right shows the blocks in a simple side by side setting, which creates a subtle secondary pattern. Either choice will make a striking heirloom for your family.
