|BLOCKS by SIZE||7.5" Quilt Blocks|
Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!

The Spinning Blades quilt block is a great starter block. It is simple to construct and introduces you to the half square triangle patch (the most commonly used patch other than a square) and, my favourite patch, the flying geese unit.
This five patch block (so named because it is designed on a 5 x 5 grid) is constructed as an uneven nine patch for ease in the sewing.
