|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 simple design of the Pall Mall quilt block makes for ease in whipping up several blocks at a time.
The quilt layout shown below on the left makes several of the blocks as mirror images so that the pinwheel motifs face towards and away from each other. These blocks are separated with sashing strips for an additional chance for more colour in your quilt.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks on point with some additional blank blocks for a pop of colour -- (can you see hearts?).
