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.

Circling Overhead

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Circling Overhead quilt block is for those quilters who would like a little more of a challenge, now that they have honed their skills in easier quilt blocks.

This quilt block is technically an eight patch as it is designed using an 8 x 8 grid. However, it is constructed as an uneven nine patch because of the different sized "chunks" created from smaller patches.

You will gets lots of practice making flying geese and using half square triangles and quarter square triangle pieces to make the aforementioned "chunks" to proceed with the final block design.

All in all this is an intriguing block to sew and I hope you enjoy making it.
