|BLOCKS by SIZE||7.5" Quilt Blocks|
Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!
The Handy Andy - Variation quilt block is a simple five patch featuring only squares and half square triangles -- a good choice if you are new to quiltmaking.
The sample quilt layout on the left features blocks set side by side, creating a subtle secondary pattern (look for the rust coloured "diamonds" formed when blocks are placed this way). The quilt layout on the right uses an on point setting of the blocks, with additional blank areas for extra colour and a spot to highlight your quilting designs.
