|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.
Sample Quilt Layouts
The two sample quilt layouts featured below both use a diagonal setting of the blocks.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses enlarged blocks by adding large corner triangles to each block. The variety of colours chosen for each of the blocks creates a subtle design feature for your quilting stitches to enhance the quilt.
The quilt layout shown on the right sets all of the blocks on point and separates them with large plain blocks to form an extra focal point in the final quilt.
