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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


The two sample quilt layouts shown below both use on point settings of the Pinwheel block, with very different results.

The quilt layout featured on the left uses full and half blocks of this easy four patch block, along with colourful, blank blocks to enlarge the quilt and give a place to showcase your quilting design.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right adds large corner triangles to each block to enlarge them. Careful, colour placement of these triangles gives an extra design element and splashes of colour to the final quilt.
