|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.
You can do so many things with the Birds in the Air quilt block when you use it to make a whole quilt, as illustrated in the sample quilts shown. By simple rotations of the blocks, you can achieve all sorts of interesting arrangements, whether you choose a straight setting or a setting of the blocks on point. It is all yours to discover.
