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

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Temple Court quilt block makes for a striking quilt, and all the while the patches are easy to make.

The quilt layout illustrated below on the left, sets whole and half pieced blocks on point with the addition of blank blocks for extra splashes of colour and a spot to showcase your quilting designs.

The quilt layout featured on the right sets the blocks side by side. A subtle secondary pattern emerges as a result.

All in all, these Temple Court quilt blocks make for a quick and easy quilt design and gets away from using some of the most common patches.
