|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.
See the magic of a secondary pattern emerge when you place the Brave World quilt blocks side by side in your quilt layout. Using the colour palette shown here, the green triangles form additional pinwheels in the resultant design as seen in the quilt on the left. You could also choose to add extra colour to your quilt by including blank blocks in an on point setting, which is a perfect location to showcase your quilting skills.
