|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.

Although the Northumberland Star quilt block is technically an eight patch design (since it is created on an 8 x 8 grid), it is more commonly constructed as a four patch, simply for ease in the sewing.
This lovely star quilt block features mainly half square triangles, (in two different sizes) and a few quarter square triangles to finish up this striking design.
