|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 two quilt layouts show below both utilize an on point setting of the blocks, but with very different results.
The quilt layout featured on the left includes several blank blocks to create some negative space in the design and a spot to show off your quilting design pattern.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses blank blocks for effect. The big difference is that these blank blocks are used to add extra splashes of colour to the quilt design.
