|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
Two sample quilt layouts featuring the seasonal Poinsettia quilt block, both quilts designed with the idea of the beautiful poinsettia plants on a black velvet cloth.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses a diagonal setting of the blocks with a framework of red at top and bottom of the quilt for an extra splash of colour.
The quilt layout featured on the right also sets the blocks on point and adds large corner triangles to each block in various colours to produce a glowing star in the centre.
