|BLOCKS by SIZE||7.5" Quilt Blocks|
Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!
The Farmer's Daughter is an easy five patch quilt block that is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter. It contains only squares and half square triangle patches.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below offer up two very different quilts, simply by the block placement and whether you choose to add additional shots of colour in the form of extra blank blocks. A second alternative is to use sashing strips to separate the blocks and thereby adding a new element to the quilt. All in all, this easy quilt block can make some striking quilts!
