|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
The Nighttime Sky quilt block is the perfect choice to try out a dark background fabric, just to go along with the name of the block.
Both of the sample quilt layouts illustrated below use an on point setting of the blocks with additional blank blocks to feature areas for your quilting designs. Placement of these blank blocks in your quilt layout makes for a chance to experiment with what elements you wish to be the focus of your design.
