BLOCKS by SIZE 5" Quilt Blocks

For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.

Cross - Variation

Sample Quilt Layouts

The two sample quilt layouts shown below feature the Cross - Variation quilt block in different ways.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses the directional nature of the block to create a geometric final design in the quilt setting, by rotating several of the blocks by 90 degree turns.

The quilt layout featured on the right sets the blocks on point and also rotates some of the blocks by 90 degrees to create a different look to the design. Separating the blocks with blank blocks of different colours adds an additional pop of colour to the quilt.
