|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!

The March Basket quilt block makes good use of the half square triangle patches. This 10" quilt block can be used in a variety of ways in your quilt, simply by rotating the blocks in different directions.
The construction of the block is a little different than the "norm" as you create several different rows and then, at times add a single triangle to the grouping. Nothing difficult, just a bit different.
In the sample quilts illustrated, I have chosen four blocks at a time and laid them out in several different variations of 90 degrees. As you can see, secondary patterns emerge as a result of these rotations. The only limiting factor in coming up with your own unique quilt is your imagination.
