BLOCKS by SIZE 16" Quilt Blocks

Larger quilt blocks offer the incentive that there are less to make to produce your quilt. When time is limited, this size of block is your best friend. A second feature is that you can try a more difficult design as the pieces may be many, but the sizes of the patches are easy to work with. A win-win all around.

Eight Hands Round

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Eight Hands Round, (also called Eight Hands Around) quilt block gives you lots of ideas for using this colourful block in your personal quilt.

Both of the quilt layouts illustrated below use an on point setting of the blocks and also separate those blocks with sashing strips. However, the resultant quilts look very different.

The quilt layout featured on the left uses both whole pieced blocks and half blocks to surround a central motif created using colourful blank blocks to feature your quilting designs.

The quilt layout on the right adds the extra splashes of colour in the form of the setting triangles on the outer edges of the quilt.

Different border treatments give an additional design element to your quilt.
