|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!

The Wheel Frame quilt block is designed on a 5 unit grid, so that it easily makes a 10" quilt block. (Note that I have also given you instructions for a 7 1/2" block as well as a 5" block).
This quilt block is a good choice when you are moving on from the beginning stages of your quiltmaking journey, as it includes both half square triangles as well as the quarter square triangle units. What is interesting is that, in this particular block, these quarter square and half square triangles are put together to form a unit which is often called a three-quarter square triangle patch. (See if you can pick these units out.) The block is sewn together as an uneven nine patch because the sections are not all the same size.
