|BLOCKS by SIZE||7" Quilt Blocks|

Sample Quilt Layouts
The Stone Tiles quilt block is an ideal choice to introduce a beginner quilter to the seven patch block.
The quilt layout shown below on the left sets the blocks on point and borders them with sashing strips of the darkest colour. The colourful, blank blocks offer the perfect spot to showcase your quilting stitches.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses the darkest colour of fabric as sashing strips to separate the blocks, which are set side by side. This adds an extra design element to the block. The mitred borders in two fabrics at opposite sides of the quilt give some additional pizzazz to the final product.
