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.


Sample Quilt Layouts

The Cheyenne quilt block is a directional quilt block which allows for a variety of quilt layouts for your final quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks side by side and rotates alternate blocks by 90 degrees, thereby creating a secondary pattern in your design. Blocks are separated with sashing strips for and additional design element.

The quilt layout featured on the right also uses the 90 degree rotations of the blocks in a diagonal setting. The side triangles are in different colours to give an extra splash of colour to the resultant quilt.
