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!

Propeller

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Propeller quilt block forms pinwheel designs when the blocks are set side by side, as evidenced in the quilt layout on the left illustrated below.

These pinwheel designs are even more evident in the quilt layout on the right, when setting the blocks on point and using the dark background fabric as the setting triangles along the edges of the quilt. This technique makes those features pop. The central motif of blank blocks in an alternate colour adds an extra design element to the quilt.
