|BLOCKS by SIZE||7" Quilt Blocks|
If 7 is your lucky number, then the seven inch size of quilt block is for you! It is not all that common in use, but if you are wanting to make smaller blocks, this category of block is a just a scaled down version of any 14" quilt block.
The two sample quilt layouts featured below using the Twisted Ribbon quilt block present very different results.
The quilt layout shown on the left used an on point setting of the blocks with lots of extra sparks of colour in the form of the large corner triangles attached to each block. The careful placement of those colours add additional interest to the quilt design.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses a standard side by side block setting to produce the illusion of a meandering "ribbon" across the whole quilt.
