|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.
Road to Kansas
Sample Quilt Layouts
The directional nature of the Road to Kansas quilt block creates endless possibilites for designing your quilt.
The quilt layout shown below on the left sets the blocks side by side. By rotating single blocks here and there, different geometric designs begin to emerge.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks on point with extra pops of colour in the blank blocks and side setting triangles added. Ninety degree rotations of some of the blocks are also featured in this quilt design for a totally different look.
