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


Celebrate your Irish roots with the Connemara quilt block. These two sample quilt layouts both use on point settings of the blocks, and are just the tip of the iceberg of what you can create using this nine patch block. As evidenced below, two very different quilt designs can be achieved with very little imagination. What will you design for your Irish heirloom?
