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.

Five Patch Frame

Sample Quilt Layouts


As its name would suggest, this Five Patch Frame quilt block is designed to surround the centre patch, using the five patches as a frame. In the block image shown here, the same background fabric is used for the block centre. However, this is the perfect spot to use a "fussy cut" square of fabric or perhaps a photo image. This block would be a wonderful choice, using a photo for the centre, for an anniversary quilt or for any family heirloom.

The sample quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side layout, with the same block throughout. But, the quilt layout on the right uses the blocks set on point, but additionally, reverses the fabric placements in each alternate block -- giving a totally different look.
