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.

Pall Mall

Free Quilt Block Pattern

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, as it can be quite effective when used in your quilt.

The sample quilts illustrated show two different styles of settings -- the side by side layout (with sashing) as well as an on point style. By adding extra blank blocks you can extend the size of your quilt and show off your quilting skills as well.
