|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
Sample Quilt Layouts
The Crossed Roads to Oklahoma quilt block is an eight patch featuring simple, pieced patches.
The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks on point, separating them with sashing strips and some blank blocks for more pops of colour.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks for a more geometric pattern. The sashing strips added here also add some extra splashes of colour. The lighter border treatment gives a totally different feel to the resultant quilt.
