|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 Churn Dash quilt block is an easy nine patch block made with simple shapes -- rectangles and half square triangles. It's a good choice for a beginner quilter to learn how the patches go together.
What is interesting about this block, is that it is known my many other names. Just some of those names for this block (and this is not a complete list) are:
* Monkey Wrench (probably the most common alternate name)
* Fishermen's Reel
* Hole in the Barn Door
* Indian Hammer
* Quail's Nest
In any event, it makes for a fun block to construct.
