|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.
Both of the sample quilt layouts illustrated below use on point settings of the quilt blocks.
The quilt layout featured on the left uses both full and half blocks as well as lots of blank blocks alternating between them. This allows for those extra splashes of colour and is further enhanced by using sashing strips to separate the blocks.
The quilt layout shown on the right adds large corner triangles to each individual block. This allows the quiltmaker to introduce a variety of colours for these large triangles to produce a sort of "colour blocking" effect due to their carefully planned placement.
