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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Travelled Roads quilt block is one for the beginner quilter as it is fast and easy to make.

This four patch block features simple patches -- squares and half square triangles, (the latter being the first pieced patch you will learn as a new quiltmaker).

An added bonus with this quilt block is its directional nature. By rotating a few or several of the blocks by 90 degrees, the resultant quilt can take on all sorts of interesting design patterns.
