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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Crow's Feet quilt block offers up all sorts of possibilities when choosing a quilt layout. The "arrows" that appear, lead the eye in all four directions of the block, and then to the quilt as a whole.

I chose to use a neutral, monochrome look for these sample quilt layouts shown below as I often get asked about what would be a nice design to make for a man. Therefore, I stuck to the brown family and was really pleased with how these designs turned out. The two sample quilts are very different and are just the "tip of the iceberg" of what you could choose to make for yourself. Enjoy!
