|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.
Two sample quilt layouts are shown below utilizing the Beacon Lights quilt block, with very different designs.
The quilt layout featured on the left sets the blocks side by side and separates them with sashing strips in a very traditional setting. The tiny "cornerstones" in the sashing strips add a subtle pop of colour to the quilt.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses an on point block setting and features lots of contrast with the bold choice of background colour in the side triangles and blank blocks.
Both quilts are striking examples of putting your imagination to work to create a unique design of your own.
