|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.
Catch As You Can
Sample Quilt LayoutsThe two sample quilt layouts shown below using the Catch As You Can block both use on point settings of the block -- but are quite different from each other.
The quilt layout featured on the left uses a standard diagonal setting, alternating blank blocks with pieced ones. The different placement of the colour of the blank blocks is what gives an additional spark to the design.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right adds large corner triangles to each block and separates those with sashing strips. The careful colour choices for the corner triangles in the larger block is what makes this quilt shine.
