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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Mother's Dream quilt block is a simple four patch design featuring patches you first learn as you begin your quiltmaking journey.

This block uses several half square triangle patches and then uses quarter square triangles and also half square triangle pieces to create what many quilters refer to as a three quarter square triangle patch. All in all, this is a fun block to create.
