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.

Nelson's Victory

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Nelson's Victory quilt block is a simple four patch design featuring only squares and half square triangle patches.

This block would be a perfect choice for a new quilter as it is easy to sew and is a wonderful block to learn about patchwork.

Upon close examination, the patches are set so that there are two contrasting pinwheels to make the subtle design.
