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.

Sawtooth Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Sawtooth Star quilt block has been around for a very long time. You will find it featured in hundreds of quilts. The block itself is often featured as the centre of another quilt block, such as the Sawtooth Ladder.

This quilt block is designed using only squares and flying geese units. It is a great block for beginners and experienced quilters alike.

Although this is a simple quilt block to make, you can do many things with this block in terms of creating a unique quilt. As shown in the sample quilt layouts, by introducing new fabrics and either adding sashing and setting the quilt blocks side by side, or setting the blocks on point, there is no end to the different looks you can create.
