BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Peony Basket

Free Quilt Block Pattern

I can't see the logic in the name Peony Basket for this quilt block, but then I was not the person who chose the name. So, that being said, this is a easy quilt block to make and perfect for those quilters who like 10" blocks. The components of this block are squares, rectangles and half square triangles -- all very common units and easy to work with.

Even though this quilt block is sewn together as an uneven nine patch, it is created on a five patch grid, and so I have included it in that category as well.

The two sample quilts illustrated show that even though this block might not have a 'masculine' name, by selecting darker colours, the man in your life will love this quilt.
