BLOCKS by SIZE 7.5" Quilt Blocks

Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!

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?
