|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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern
I love quilt blocks like this Road to Kansas block because of their obvious directional nature. This presents all sorts of interesting possibilities when it comes to designing your quilt.
At first glance, this four patch block is pretty straightforward. It contains only half square triangles and two different sized squares. The fun begins when you start to rotate the blocks in your quilt placement.
