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

The two sample quilt layouts shown below both feature the Royalty Block in diagonal settings.

The quilt layout featured on the left adds different coloured, large corner triangles to each block. The benefit is twofold -- larger blocks and then all sorts of design possibilities depending on what colours you choose and their placements.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right adds sashing strips to separate the blocks and several blank blocks to showcase your quilting designs.
