|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 Sunny Day quilt block has a directional nature to its design, which leads to all sorts of possibilities in your resultant quilt.
The quilt layout featured on the left below uses 90 degree rotations of many of the blocks to form a geometric design -- (one of many possibilites) in this side by side setting of the quilt blocks.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses rotations of some of the blocks in an on point setting. The additional blank blocks allow for an extra punch of colour and a spot for exquisite quilting designs. (I get sort of an "aztec" feel from this quilt. How about you?)
