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

Sample Quilt Layouts

The two sample quilts shown below using the Day Dreams quilt block are both created using diagonal settings of the blocks.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets both full and half pieced blocks and includes blank blocks to add a spot to feature your lovely quilting design.

The quilt layout featured on the right also utilizes an on point setting of the blocks and lots of extra colour in the blank areas in the centre along with the outer setting triangles. The sashing strips separating the blocks give additional interest to the final quilt.
