BLOCKS by SIZE 7.5" Quilt Blocks

Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!

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.
