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 English Wedding Ring quilt block is a simple five patch featuring squares and half square triangles. The sample quilt layout on the left uses a standard side by side block setting which creates a subtle secondary patteren. The quilt layout on the right utilizes an on point setting and features extra blank blocks for additional colour.
