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.

Cat's Cradle

Sample Quilt Layouts

I am a lover of "scrappy" quilts and the quilt block called Cat's Cradle is a perfect candidate to use up all of those scraps you have been saving. I have shown the block in two versions in the sample quilt layouts below -- a light version and a dark version.

Due to the subtle directional nature of the block, lots a variations in your quilts can result by using 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks. These two samples below show that, and yield very different results.
