|BLOCKS by SIZE||6" Quilt Blocks|
Many quiltmakers like to make six inch quilt blocks in order to use a greater variety of blocks in a sampler style quilt. Another reason might be to test out the look of a block in a smaller size in order to save on the fabrics (just in case the block looks very different than in your imagination).
Whatever your reason for creating six inch blocks, the pieces are all just smaller versions of larger sized quilt blocks -- such as the most popular size, the 12" quilt block. This is what makes quiltmaking so exciting -- you are the designer and get to choose all the components.

Air Castle is a nine patch quilt block containing half square triangles, three-quarter square triangles, and a square in the square unit for the centre of the quilt block. This is an easy to intermediate skill level quilt block pattern.
The sample quilt shows the blocks laid out side by side with several borders. A totally different look can be achieved by simply switching out the colours in the borders.
