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.

Day Dreams

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Day Dreams quilt block is a design to have you practice up on your quarter square triangles to make a subtle star as one of the focal points in this lovely block.

You will also get some practice in using the square in a square patch in the centre of the block.

The sewing is easy if you take care with the bias edges of those triangles and this works up quickly as an uneven nine patch quilt block.
