BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Sample Quilt Layouts


I played around with the Sandy Dunes block when making the sample quilt layouts illustrated. As you can see, the quilt shown on the left uses a simple straight set with sashing. Changing up the sashing colours produces a visual secondary pattern forming a sort of "staircase" effect in the design.

By adding extra blank blocks to the quilt illustrated on the right with blocks set on point, the focus becomes the pinwheel shapes and gives a different geometric look to that quilt. What can you come up with?
