Complimentary Quilt Blocks

When trying to find 2 or more blocks that work well together in a quilt, it's best to choose them based on the same grid size. For example 4 patch blocks work best with 4 patch blocks. Next, because they will be alternating quilt blocks, odd numbers of rows and columns work best for the quilt layout.

For this example, I chose the Broken Dishes, Economy and Diamond Star blocks in a 3 by 3 block quilt layout. The Broken Dishes blocks are turned in opposite corners and they're transformed into to a great quilt with just 3 basic blocks.

Happy Quilting!
