|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.
The Grandmother's Choice quilt block is a basic five patch featuring half square triangles. This block is a good choice if you are just getting started in quiltmaking.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below are both created setting the blocks on point. Just subtle differences allow for extra colour enhancement in the form of blank blocks and setting triangles and this is the perfect place to showcase your quilting designs.
