|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 Mother's Own quilt block is a perfect choice for a quilt to celebrate Mother's Day. It is an easy five patch block constructed using only squares and rectangles.
"Ah ha!" you say. There are triangles used to make the star in the centre. Well ... yes ... but they are sewn using the "sew and flip" method which is so popular with quilters. No triangles are used. What could be easier?
The block is sewn as an uneven nine patch, rather than in five rows of five -- (just an easier method, in my view).
The two sample quilts illustrated introduce an additional fabric for the sashing between the blocks. This is not necessary, but I thought it added a little extra pizzazz to the sample quilts.
