|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.
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.
