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.

Woven Chevron

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Woven Chevron is a simple block made up of commonly used patches -- the half square triangle, quarter square triangles and squares. I took the liberty of making the central patch less bulky by using a square in a square patch, rather than four half square triangles, as in the original rendition of this block. This reduces the number of seams in the centre of the block.

You can do all sorts of interesting designs using this four patch block -- (so named as it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid). However, due to my edit of the design as mentioned above, it is easily constructed instead as an uneven nine patch.
