|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.
Birds in the Air
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Birds in the Air quilt block is an old favourite. I like it because of the geometry -- being the "math nerd" that I am. And speaking of math -- take note of the directional nature of the block. With 90 degree roations in single or groupings of the blocks, you can design a variety of stunning quilts -- as evidenced on the following page.
This four patch quilt block is made entirely of half square triangles, using two different sizes of those patches. You will be a master of this unit in no time when you make all the patches necessary for your quilt.
