BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Desert Highway

Sample Quilt Layouts

As you might notice, I have chosen colours of the desert and its sun for this Desert Highway quilt block. However, you might have a very different colour scheme in mind for your quilt block and resultant quilt. The five patch block makes good use of the simplest of quilt patches -- squares and half square triangles.

The two sample quilt layouts illustrated are created using the most commonly used settings. The quilt layout on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks while the right quilt layout lays the blocks on point and features sashing strips and extra blank blocks to give an additional pop of colour. What will you choose as the perfect quilt layout for your blocks?
