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!

Lady of the Lake

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Looking at the Lady of the Lake quilt block may make you think that it looks familiar -- and rightly so. There is a subtle difference between this block and the Opposites Attract quilt block - mainly in the corners.

Both of these five patch quilt blocks are fun to work with as you can make so many different looks in your quilts. On the surface the block looks pretty boring, but by switching up the direction of the block and its placement, you can achieve any number of looks. Then, by using up your scrap stash, other possibilities and looks arise.

For this quilt block, I have included two pages of quilt layouts -- one page using only two colours and the other page creating scrappy quilts. Now it is your turn to come up with some interesting heirlooms of your own.
