|BLOCKS by SIZE||7.5" Quilt Blocks|
Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!
Salt Water Taffy
Free Quilt Block Pattern
I used the obvious colour scheme to create this Salt Water Taffy quilt block -- that colour scheme being what I would see on the seashore. This five patch block is an easy one to get you started on your quiltmaking journey.
This block is constructed as an uneven nine patch as I find that the simplest construction method for most five patch blocks, despite the name.
The sample quilts illustrated are both laid out with blocks set on point, but they differ slightly as one has sashing strips to separate the blocks with setting triangles along the outside edge -- for a place to feature your quilting skills. The second quilt is made using blocks and partial blocks to complete the whole space. Enjoy!
