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.

Chinese Puzzle

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Chinese Puzzle quilt block is not too exciting at first glance. But by using 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks and/or flipping other blocks, you can create a stunning variety of quilts -- often with an optical illusion. Both quilts shown below use rotations of the blocks while the quilt on the right also uses flips of the colours to create mirror images. Lots of fun can be had when using this quilt block.
