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.

Jacob's Ladder - Variation

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Jacob's Ladder - Variation quilt block does not resemble, in any way, the traditional Jacob's Ladder quilt block, but then I don't choose the name of these blocks.

This quilt block is comprised of only squares and flying geese patches and so, the block is easy to construct as an uneven nine patch.

I chose to make this block as a "scrappy" version (favourites of mine) but you could easily use a special colour scheme of your own for a different look.

You might think this block does look familiar though. Perhaps you might want to look closely at Road to California to spot the differences.
