|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.

The Hovering Hawks quilt block is a fun block to select in order to use up your scraps. Of course, you can also choose to colour coordinate the pieces, but this is a great opportunity to explore making a "scrappy" quilt with lots of variety in the pieces. This four patch block is made of half square triangles and squares.
