|BLOCKS by SIZE||8" Quilt Blocks|
Eight inch quilt blocks are commonly used in quilts that are made up of one block only and the parts are easily divisible by four. Also, by setting the blocks in different layouts, you can create many different new designs -- sometimes with just a simple rotation of the block. This is not to say that larger or smaller versions of the same quilt block cannot be used in your quilt. Once again, you are the designer.
Flock of Geese
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Flock of Geese quilt block looks rather simple at first glance -- and the good news is that it is an easy block to construct. But, don't let 'simple' fool you. There is a multitude of ways to lay out your quilt and make a totally different result than your friend -- all with this easy quilt block. This is evidenced in the two sample quilts illustrated. Imagine what you could come up with just with a few rotations of the block here and there.
This quilt block is made entirely of half square triangles. in two different sizes. This four patch block is fun to use to play around with your scraps to make any number of colourful quilts. I have chosen to make a 'blue' quilt, with all sorts of different darks and lights in a variety of blues.
