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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

Two sample quilt layouts are shown below for the Next Door Neighbour quilt block.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets full and half blocks on point with the addition of blank blocks -- a perfect spot to showcase your quilting design.

The quilt layout on the right also uses a diagonal setting of the blocks. However, the blocks themselves are enlarged by the addition of large corner triangles on each block. The careful placement of the colour of these larger triangles gives the extra design element in this lovely quilt.
