BLOCKS by SIZE 12" Quilt Blocks

A quilter's favourite - the twelve inch quilt block. These are probably the most commonly used. The measurements divide easily and evenly for quick calculations. Whether the goal is a bed-sized quilt or a cuddle quilt in an afghan size, a 12" quilt block is your go-to choice.

Aunt Nancy's Favorite

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Aunt Nancy's Favorite (or as I prefer to spell it ... "Aunt Nancy's Favourite") is an easy to intermediate level quilt block to produce. This four patch block is only difficult due to the number of pieces used to create the block. But, it is well worth the effort.

The quilt block contains only half square triangles and the smaller units, the quarter square triangles, but nothing is difficult if you pay close attention to the precision of your quarter inch seam allowances and note that some of the patches are mirror images (where the quarter square triangle pieces are used).

As illustrated in the sample quilts drawings shown, you can create a special heirloom that would look totally different than one made my your friends. Imagination and colour placement are all that is needed.
