|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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Catch Me If You Can quilt block is a four patch that is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter. It contains only half square triangles and flying geese units -- the first pieced patches you will learn as someone new to quiltmaking.
Colour choices and placement can have a big impact on the resultant quilts you might design using this quilt block, as evidenced below in the two sample quilts illustrated. This just reinforces that easy blocks do not necessarily equate to boring blocks.
