|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 Checkmate quilt block is a simple design and, as you can see from the images below, it can make for some interesting quilts. The two sample quilt layouts illustrated give very different looks to this easy, uneven nine patch quilt block. The additional colour added, whether in the form of sashing strips to separate the blocks and/or extra blank blocks, give just that added punch to your quilt design.
