|BLOCKS by SIZE||7" Quilt Blocks|
If 7 is your lucky number, then the seven inch size of quilt block is for you! It is not all that common in use, but if you are wanting to make smaller blocks, this category of block is a just a scaled down version of any 14" quilt block.
The Magnolia block is one of a series of Flower quilt blocks here on Patchwork Square. This seven patch block makes for some lovely and fresh quilts as shown below in the two sample quilt layouts. A side by side quilt block setting, with sashing strips for some extra colour are featured in the quilt layout shown on the left. A diagonal layout of the quilt blocks, as shown on the right, gives a totally different result. All in all, these are lovely springtime designs -- just like those beautiful magnolia trees!
