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 Rainy Day quilt block is a simple double pinwheel design.

The quilt layout illustrated below on the left uses a standard on point setting of the blocks which allows for the additional pops of colour and a spot to showcase your quilting design.

The quilt layout shown on the right also uses an on point block setting. However, many more blocks and half blocks are used to create this geometric design.
