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.

Chisholm Trail Variation

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This four patch quilt block is a slight variation of the Chisholm Trail quilt block. By a simple different arrangement of the light, dark and medium values of the fabrics it appears to be a totally different block. The block features simple patchwork, using only squares and half square triangles.

The sample quilt layouts show two very different quilts. One quilt uses a side by side block setting, while the second quilt sets the quilt blocks on point. Both quilts use sashing to separate the blocks, with very different results.
