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.

Temple Court

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Temple Court quilt block was new to me and I liked it immediately. This block is an ideal choice if you want to make a larger block, although I have included instructions for two smaller sized blocks as well.

If you have had little practice using the square in a square patch, this is your chance -- (look for the red pops of colour in this sample block). You will also sew a few flying geese units, just for good measure. Other than those patches, the rest of the pieces are simply squares and rectangles to make this striking block -- easy, peasy.
