|BLOCKS by SIZE||10" Quilt Blocks|
What could be easier, math-wise, than a quilt block in a 10 inch size? Surprisingly, the 10" block is not the most commonly used size, (that would be the 12" block), but there are still many quilt blocks that fit into this category and here is my list of currently available patterns.
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Wedding Ring quilt block is a five patch block, because it is created on a 5 x 5 grid. It is made only with squares and half square triangles so it is a easy block to assemble.
Speaking of assembly, many quilters choose to sew this block together as five separate rows. I prefer to assemble the block as an uneven nine patch as I find it easier to work with larger grouping of patches rather than rows. However, neither is correct -- it is simply a preference.
The sample quilt illustrated give you two different looks, simply by choosing to set the blocks side by side or on point. The resultant quilt focuses on a different aspect than the other setting choice.
