|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 Sickle quilt block is a simple four patch design featuring only squares and half square triangles.
This easy quilt block is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter. What you may not notice about this block at first glance, is its directional nature, which allows for all sorts of interesting block layouts for your resultant quilt, simply by rotating the block or grouping of blocks by 90 degrees. Subtle secondary designs will result when this happens.
