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.


Sample Quilt Layouts

Two sample quilts shown below feature the Georgia quilt block, a simple five patch design.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses a standard on point setting of the blocks, separated by sashing strips. Several blank blocks are included to offer a spot to showcase your quilting designs and an extra splash of colour.

The quilt layout featured on the right also uses a diagonal setting of the blocks, alternating with blank blocks as well, for a totally different look to the final quilt.
