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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


The God's Eye eight patch quilt block features lots of half square triangles and flying geese units -- the most commonly used pieced patches in quiltmaking.

Whether you place your blocks on point or side by side in your chosen quilt layout, as subtle secondary pattern emerges in the background fabric -- sort of like a starburst (at least to my eyes). Can you spot it?
