|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.
Sample Quilt Layouts
The sample quilts shown below use the Art Square quilt block in standard and simple layouts. Choose to set your quilt blocks side by side or on point, with or without sashing strips to separate the blocks. Perhaps you have a lovely design of your own. Go with that since it is your heirloom to create.
