|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!

I was watching the Disney movie The Little Mermaid recently and then a few days later just happened on a quilt block called Mermaid's Hair. This seemed to be a sign that I should make a pattern for this quilt block. Naturally, I incorporated Ariel's hair and fin colours as part of my colour scheme.
This five patch block is a good learning experience to practice your half square triangles. The only other basic shape used is the square, so the construction is pretty simple. I chose to construct the block as an uneven nine patch as I think it is easier to sew than using five rows of five, but you may opt for sewing in rows as your chosen method, and that is fine as well.
