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.

Star of Luxor

Sample Quilt Layouts

Quilt layouts created using the Star of Luxor quilt block can be very different from one other. Both of the quilt illustrations shown below set the blocks on point, but by using different colours in the blank blocks, they look very unlike each other. Setting the blocks side by side will produce a striking quilt layout as well. The "sky is the limit", as the cliché goes. (Sorry, I just couldn't resist that one.)
