|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.
The two sample quilt layouts for the Crossed Roads to Oklahoma - Variation block are very different, indeed.
The quilt layout featured on the left sets the blocks side by side and adds sashing strips for an extra design element.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets each block on point and adds large corner triangles to increase their size. The careful colour placement of these corner triangles gives the design pop to this resultant quilt.
