|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.
The sample quilt layouts illustrated below show how different this simple block can look in a quilt. One setting shows the quilt blocks side by side, separated by sashing. The second quilt layout shows the blocks, in groups of four, set on point, but with an arrangement that allows for large corner triangles and blank blocks in the centre, for extra quilting to be displayed.
