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.

The Watermill quilt block is an easy design featuring only simple patches -- squares, rectangles and half square triangles.

Although technically an eight patch block (since it is created on an 8 x 8 grid), it is sewn as an uneven nine patch -- due to the makeup of the patches. Easy, peasy.
