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.

Crow's Feet

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Crow's Feet quilt block is technically an eight patch block, but rarely is sewn together row by row as that just gets cumbersome. Instead it is constructed as an uneven nine patch since that just makes the sewing easier. I have assigned this quilt block to an intermediate level of difficulty, simply due to the number of pieces in the block. None of the patches are difficult to construct. You will be making half square triangles and flying geese units.

The two sample quilts illustrated look very different and that is simply because of the choice of layout of the blocks.
