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

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Woven Chevron quilt block is a simple four patch design that offers lots of opportunities for the design of a unique quilt.

The quilt layout shown below on the left sets the blocks vertically, and rotates alternate blocks by 180 degrees to form a matching coloured chain design.

The quilt layout featured on the right, also flips some of the blocks just as the vertical layout, but the side by side setting gives the appearance of a very different look.
