The 8" quilt block patterns on this page are divided into several categories based on the grid (think graph paper squares) they are drawn on.

12x12 grid12x12

Use these links to skip to the 8-inch quilt blocks you're looking for based on the grid they are drawn on.

If you are looking for an 'alternate block' for a quilt design you are working on, block designs using the same grid tend to look good together with little effort.

Blocks with their patches set on point might not look like they belong in a particular category, but look closely. You should be able to recognize the grid divisions with a bit of practice.

Some 8 inch quilt block patterns include at least some paper piecing. If that's the case, there is a free pattern for you to download.

Under the image of each block are the other sizes included in the block tutorial.

Newly published quilt block tutorials get added as soon as they are live on the site.

Enjoy these modern or paper pieced or traditional quilt patterns!
