|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.
Roll of the Dice
Free Quilt Block Pattern
This Roll of the Dice is a nice choice for a beginner quilter. It is easy to construct and introduces two common quilt patches -- the half square triangle and the square in a square patch.
Although this block is technically a four patch (so named as it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid), with the changes I made to the pattern, it is now constructed as an uneven nine patch.
