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 Cowboys quilt block features subtle pinwheels, which indicate movement. As a result, this is a fun, four patch quilt block to make to hone up on your patchwork skills. The block features half square triangles in various sizes as well as a few quarter square triangles to finish off the look.

The two sample quilt layouts shown below both use an on point setting, but each is different. One quilt layout features sashing strips to separate the blocks with some extra blank blocks for further separation and added colour. The other quilt layout adds extra focus with lots of blank blocks for additional colour and to showcase your quilting skills.
