|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.
Sample Quilt Layouts
The Vestibule quilt block is a simple design featuring a centre star motif. The two sample quilt layouts shown below both bring this star to the forefront.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the block side by side. When placed in this manner, the star motif seems to grow as the outer, lighter triangles form extended points on the star.
The quilt layout featured on the right uses an on point setting of the blocks and separates them with sashing strips for an additional design element. The blank blocks also add extra pops of colour and a spot to feature a lovely quilting design.
