BLOCKS by SIZE 9" Quilt Blocks

Rio Grande Crossing

Sample Quilt Layouts

Take advantage of the directional nature of this simple nine patch quilt block called Rio Grande Crossing. All sorts of interesting quilt layouts can be achieved when you choose to rotate a single block or a group of blocks by 90 degrees. Secondary patterns start to emerge.

Choose to set the quilt blocks side by side or by placing the blocks on point, extra blank blocks and setting triangles give huge pops of colour.
