|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.

The Art Square quilt block is a great starter for the beginner quilter. It can be made as a larger block to get the idea of how patches go together. For quilters who want more of a challenge, you could make the same block but in a smaller scale. This will really enhance the precision of your piecing skills.
The Art Square quilt block contains simple patches -- only the square and half square triangles to create those flying geese units, which are so common to many quilts.
