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.

Crossed Roads to Oklahoma - Variation

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This Crossed Roads to Oklahoma - Variation quilt block is done using only three colours, rather than the four colour version currently on this website. Each block is technically an eight patch design, but I prefer to sew the block as an uneven nine patch, just because I like things to be easier to sew, and this works better for me.

Although this block seems to be difficult, it is really not -- using only simple patches in its design. With careful stitching of your quarter inch seam allowance, this will go together in no time. You will be using only squares, rectangles, half square triangles and flying geese patches -- all ones you learn when you first start your quiltmaking journey. Enjoy!
