|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 five patch, but is sewn (for ease) as an uneven nine patch block. Although you see triangles in the block, you construct this design using the "flip and sew" method for triangles, which uses only squares and/or rectangles, rather than cut triangle pieces. Easy, peasy.
Both of the sample quilt layouts shown below use an on point setting of the blocks, with sashing strips to separate them and add an extra design element. The quilt layout on the left also uses strategically placed blank blocks and setting triangles for added pops of colour.
