|BLOCKS by SIZE||10.5" Quilt Blocks|
A quilt block in a size of 10½ inches is not commonly used, but it is a nice "in-between" size to scale a quilt block when 14" is too big and 7" is too small. As you may have guessed, these quilt blocks fit into the category of seven patch since they are designed on a 7 x 7 grid.
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!
