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.

Checkerboard Star

Sample Quilt Layouts


The two sample quilts shown below for the Checkerboard Star quilt block are both done as monochrome quilts. However, this block lends itself nicely to a scrappy style as well.

The quilt layouts below use common settings of the blocks -- blocks set on point or side by side. Either choice makes a lovely layout for your quilt blocks. The quilt on the left, the on point setting of the blocks, also gives the opportunity for extra colour to be added, in the form of blank blocks and setting triangles -- to showcase your quilting skills!
