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

These two sample quilt layouts illustrate how simple 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks can make for a very interesting design.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks side by side in groupings of four blocks. Two of those blocks are rotated by 90 degrees to form a large star in the centre of an "X".

The quilt layout featured on the right uses the rotations in a different way to produce an interesting geometric design for your final quilt.
