|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 Sunshine quilt block is for those quilters who would like a bit more of a challenge. There is nothing difficult in this design -- just lots of pieces, so careful sewing is required.
The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks side by side thereby creating a secondary design pattern where the blocks touch.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses an on point block setting. With careful placement of colour on the side setting triangles and borders of this quilt, a powerful design emerges.
