|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!
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.
