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.

The Cheyenne quilt block is a wonderful choice as an introductory block for a new quilter.

This block is technically a four patch design, as it is created using a 4 x 4 grid. However, it is actually sewn as an uneven nine patch due to the arrangement of the patches.

This block features two commonly used patches -- the half square triangle and the square in a square unit which makes up the centre of the block. You will have great fun with colour placement in this block.
