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 Petronella quilt block is a four patch design featuring only squares and rectangles while creating triangles in a method known as "sew and flip". This method of constructing half square triangle patches is the perfect way to introduce a new quiltmaker to making an easy block.

Once this first pinwheel block is sewn, there will be no stopping you from continuing on in your quiltmaking journey.
