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.

Easter Basket

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Easter Basket quilt block looks simple on the surface but don't be fooled that simple equals an uninteresting quilt. By changing up the "flower" colours in the block, and perhaps also changing the "basket" fabrics, you can make an interesting assortment of final blocks for your Easter quilt.

In the sample quilt layouts shown, notice in the straight set quilt, four blocks have been used, with each block being rotated by 90 degrees, to create a larger block. The result is that a secondary pattern emerges. Can you see the "stars" made by the flower fabrics?

The construction of this quilt block looks complicated, but it is really just a matter of putting the pieces together in the correct sequence. Who doesn't love a puzzle, and a simple puzzle at that!
