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.

Dewey Dream - a Variation

Sample Quilt Layouts

I have taken a liberty with my version here of the Dewey Dream quilt block, in that I added more colours to the original block, which was designed using only two colours.

The quilt layout featured below on the left sets whole blocks and half blocks on point with the additional splashes of colour in the form of blank blocks to showcase your quilting design.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses an on point setting of the blocks. Sashing strips with "cornerstones" separate them to give a totally different look to this quilt.
