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.
Use these links to skip to the blocks you're looking for.
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 of the 8" quilt block patterns include at least some paper piecing. If that's the case, there is a free pattern for you to download.
