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.

Noon and Light

Sample Quilt Layouts

The two quilt layouts shown below using the Noon and Light block make the same block look very different in the finished product.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks side by side, separating them by sashing strips. This is a favourite setting used by many quilters.

The quilt layout featured on the right uses an on point setting of the blocks. Large corner triangles are sewn to each block to enlarge and add that extra splash of colour, when you use careful placement of these large triangles. So many arrangements of these large pieces can create a whole variety of resultant quilts.
