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 Next Door Neighbor quilt block (or in my "neck of the woods" it would be spelled Next Door Neighbour), is a wonderful choice as a learning tool for a beginner quilter.

This block is comprised of only half square triangles, (which are the first pieced patches you will learn), and squares. This four patch design will make a perfect addition to your collection of pinwheel blocks.
