|BLOCKS by SIZE||5" Quilt Blocks|
For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.
Sample Quilt Layouts
The directional nature of the Opposites Attract quilt block opens up all sorts of interesting possibilities for the quilt layout you might choose.
The quilt layout on the left sets individual blocks on point, but uses 90 degree rotations of the blocks to create an overall geometric design. The quilt layout shown on the right groups four blocks together to make a "new" larger block in a totally different design and a secondary pattern emerges.
