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.

Grape Basket

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Grape Basket quilt block is one of dozens of "basket" blocks. Many a quilt has been made of only basket blocks and no two blocks were the same. Generally, the basket type of quilt block is made of half square triangles, rectangles and sometimes squares. In the example shown, I have made the basket with a variety of "flowers".

The sample quilts show a large quilt, set on point with sashing between the quilt blocks, and a single block set medallion style, and "framed" like a picture. You are only limited to your imagination.
