|BLOCKS by SIZE||7.5" Quilt Blocks|
Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!
The Poppy quilt block is a simple five patch design utilizing simple shapes such as squares and rectangles, and common flying geese patches.
The quilt layout on the right uses an on point block layout with additional colour in the blank blocks. By rotating or flipping the block and/or setting them in groupings, you can achieve a unique and striking quilt for remembrance.
A straight setting of the blocks is shown in the quilt layout on the left, with white patches replacing some of the green squares in a few of the quilt blocks to create a centre cross. (This idea came from the ladies of St. Wenn Church in the UK, for which I thank them.)
