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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Wheel in the Road quilt block is a simple block to make. For those new to the "3/4 square triangle", here is your introduction to that particular quilt patch, which makes up the centre of the block. Other patches include the half square triangle and the flying geese units.

The sample quilts illustrated show how you could lay the quilt blocks either side-by-side or on point to achieve a different look. There is no end to the creativity in designing your own quilt.
