|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.
The Buttercup quilt block is another directional block that opens up interesting design possibilities. By using 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks, a secondary pattern can emerge to create an entirely different design than expected.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below both use those rotations. The quilt that is set with blocks side by side uses the blocks in groupings of four, while the quilt using blocks set on point uses the rotations on individual blocks for an all over effect.
