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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Six Windows of Sunshine quilt block offers all sorts of interesting opportunities to create a striking quilt.

The quilt layout featured below on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks. The border treatment shown, highlights the colour scheme to give a southwestern feel to the quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks "on point" and offers splashes of colour in the blank areas which are the perfect places to show off your quilting designs.
