BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Red Cross

Sample Quilt Layouts

When using the Red Cross quilt block you will likely consider if or how you would like the crosses to be a focus in the quilt.

The quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side setting with sashing strips separating the blocks. The breaks up the look of so much red in the illustrated quilt (but not by much).

The quilt layout featured on the right sets the blocks on point with large triangles on each corner of a block. This sets up the chance to have a "colour blocking" look to the quilt, as placement and colour choice of those corner triangles allows for this option. The resultant quilt has a very different look from the other design.
