BLOCKS by SIZE 7.5" Quilt Blocks

Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!

Opposites Attract

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.
