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.


Free Quilt Block Pattern

This four patch quilt block was a new one to me and I had never heard the name for this block before either. However, I discovered the Images quilt block design in one of my reference books -- 5500 Quilt Block Designs by Maggie Malone, so here is a free quilt block pattern for you.

Squares, rectangles and half square triangles are all that is used in this block, so these are no new patches for you. The trick to making this design is the colour placement in the four quadrants of the block. Just the challenge you were looking for, I'm sure!
