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.

Jersey Basket

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Jersey Basket quilt block is a another easy block because it contains only squares and half square triangles. It is constructed in the method of a four patch, by dividing the sections of the block into quadrants and then sewing those quadrants together. All in all, this is a wonderful block to get you started on your quiltmaking journey.

The two sample quilts illustrated show the quilt blocks rotated here and there to create a secondary pattern, or just to have a flow to the quilts.
