BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

King David's Crown - a Variation

Sample Quilt Layouts


The King David's Crown quilt block is a five patch design featuring half square triangles and quarter square triangle patches. I took a few liberties with the colour placement of the patches -- a slight variation of what is commonly used -- hence the name I gave to this quilt block.

I loved how the colours popped in the two sample quilt layouts shown below. Additional blank blocks or setting triangles offer opportunities to give the quilt a little more pizzazz (in my opinion). Both quilt layouts use an on point setting of the blocks for two very different quilts as a result.
