|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.
Best of All
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Best of All quilt block is a nine patch which will give you some experience in using cut pieces to make a difference arrangement of the patches. I'm referring to the patches adjacent to the centre square which use a square, some half square triangles and some quarter square triangles. These pieces are joined in a frequently used patch (and I don't think there is a specific name for it), but it is not a common patch. There are also some flying geese units thrown in for good measure. All in all this is a fun sewing experience.
The two sample quilts illustrated are both set on point with sashing strips, but each has a personality of its own.
