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.

The Seesaw quilt block is a simple design featuring primarily flying geese patches to form pinwheels.

Rather than sewing half square triangle cut pieces to make the "blade" units, you will sew them together using the "sew and flip" method. This is an easier task, but there will be a small amount of waste fabric, which most quilters do not mind. All in all, this four patch block goes together in no time.
