|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 Pall Mall quilt block is a four patch that is a good choice for the beginner quilter. It contains only simple shapes -- squares and half square triangles. However, don't let the fact that this is a simple block to make deter you, as it can be quite effective when used in your quilt.
