|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!
The Saltwater Taffy quilt block is an ideal choice for a beginner quilter.
The quilt layouts featured below both use an on point setting of the quilt blocks for similar but subtle differences in the resultant quilts. The quilt design illustrated on the left uses fewer pieced blocks but incorporates a couple of colourful blank blocks in the centre of the quilt and more shots of colour along the edges of the quilt, for a sort of "colour blocking" effect.
The quilt layout shown on the right fills the quilt design with full and half blocks for a total overall design.
