|BLOCKS by SIZE||7.5" Quilt Blocks|
Ten inch quilt blocks are a favourite of quilters. However if you are wanting to make a smaller version of any given 10" block, with a little finagling, the math for a 7½ inch block is not that difficult. And -- for the blocks below, I have done that math for you! A win-win!
Both of the sample quilt layouts shown below featuring the Twister block use an on point setting of the blocks, but look very different.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left gives the impression of motion and forms pinwheels as a subtle secondary design where the blocks meet. Sashing strips add an additional colour pop to this design.
The quilt layout featured on the right adds large corner triangles to each block, thereby increasing the size of each. The careful colour placement of these extra triangles gives a new design element to the resultant quilt.
