|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.
Both of the quilt layouts shown below feature sashing strips to separate the blocks. The quilt on the left features a side by side quilt block layout which tends to make the pinwheels stand out. The quilt shown on the right uses a standard on point quilt layout which allows for additional colour to be added in the form of the blank blocks -- a perfect spot to showcase your quilting skills.
