|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.
Two sample quilt layouts featuring the Travelled Roads quilt blocks are shown below.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses 90 degree rotations to make use of the directional nature of the block. All sorts of interesting designs can be made using this rotation technique. This quilt shown here is only one of many.
The quilt layout featured on the right sets the blocks on point, separating them with sashing strips. Additional blank blocks in different fabrics give an extra colour pop to the quilt and also a spot to showcase your quilting designs.
