|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 Autumn Puzzle quilt block offers up a variety of options for designing your quilt. These two quilt layout samples shown below give very different end results simply by block placement and/or additional colours added for more emphasis.
Whether you choose to have meandering pinwheels diagonally across the quilt, as shown on the left, or showcase your quilting skills and extra pops of colour in the blank areas as in the quilt layout on the right, there is an option just for you.
