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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

I took a liberty with this Brave World quilt block by adding in a fourth colour. Most renditions I have seen of this easy quilt block show only three colours. I like to be different -- and I also love colour.

So, I mentioned "easy". This four patch quilt block is comprised entirely of squares and the most common quilt patch -- the half square triangle -- in a couple of different sizes. This is a great starter block for beginner quilters and can be made as a large or a small block, to suit your needs.

The sample quilts illustrated show two totally different looks. Note that in the "straight set" quilt layout, a third pinwheel appears because of the extra colour used.
