|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 Indian Star quilt block is made of simple, common quilt patches -- the square and the flying geese unit. You are limited only in your imagination for how your quilt will be designed using this block.
The sample quilts illustrated show a straight setting of the quilt block, with alternate blocks rotated by 90 degrees, resulting in a secondary pattern emerging. Secondly, by setting the blocks on point, you can achieve totally different results. Let the design process begin!
