|BLOCKS by SIZE||5" Quilt Blocks|
For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.
Sample Quilt Layouts
The Dakota Gold quilt block is a simple five patch design featuring only squares, rectangles and half square triangle units. This easy quilt block is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter and -- as you can see from the images shown below -- you can make some stunning quilts from this block.
Both of these designs shown here use an on point quilt layout with very different results. You might also choose a quilt layout with the blocks set side by side for a simpler construction. The quilt of your dreams is only up to your imagination!
