BLOCKS by SIZE 5" Quilt Blocks

For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.

Sample Quilt Layouts


In the two sample quilt layouts illustrated, I have chosen to use the quilt block in groupings of four, to take advantage of the directional nature of the blocks. By rotating the blocks within these groupings, in 90 degree increments, different designs emerge. The use of sashing adds additional colour to the final quilts.
