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.

Ornamental Tile

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Ornamental Tile quilt block is a little more challenging than some blocks -- only because of the layout of the individual pieces that make the four pieced units in the block. They are not difficult to construct, but care must be taken for accurate quarter inch seam allowances so that the pieces do not become distorted.

Once the pieced patches are created, the rest of the construction of this uneven nine patch quilt block is a breeze.

The next step is playing around with quilt layouts to find what pleases you. The sample quilts illustrated give you just two of the many designs that could be made with this quilt block.
