BLOCKS by SIZE 10" Quilt Blocks

What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.

Sample Quilt Layouts

The two sample quilt layouts shown below both use simple settings of the quilt block to fashion the quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left utilizes a standard side by side block setting. By using sashing strips to separate the blocks, they appear to float and the extra sparkle in the quilt is from the tiny cornerstones within the sashing.

The quilt layout featured on the right enlarges each block by adding large corner triangles to each block. The careful placement of the colour of these triangles gives a whole different look to the final quilt.
