|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.
Noon and Light
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Noon and Light quilt block is an easy block to sew thereby making it is a wonderful choice for a beginner quilter.
This four patch design features patches that are common to many blocks. It uses the square in a square unit as its centre patch and is surrounded with patches that quilters often refer to as a three quarter square triangle, which uses both half square triangles and quarter square triangles -- so you get practice in both of these units.
All in all it is a fun block to make.
