|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.

For those of you looking to make a quilt for that little boy in your life -- look no further than the Little Boat quilt block. This simple block can allow you to use up some of that fabric stash you have been hoarding -- (oops, I must be speaking about myself, as I have a huge fabric stash!). Lots of colourful sails made using half square triangles can make this a really special quilt for that young man in your life.
The sample quilts illustrated feature a scrappy version and a quilt with extra blank blocks to show off your quilting skills. Let the fun begin!
