|BLOCKS by SIZE||10" Quilt Blocks|
What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.
Two sample quilt layouts are shown below featuring the Halley's Comet quilt block -- a simple five patch design.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses a standard block setting of side by side and separates the blocks with sashing strips and "cornerstones" for an extra pop of colour.
The quilt layout featured on the rights sets the blocks on point for an overall design with lots of interest. The different mitred borders on the quilt give an additional design element and splash of colour interest.
