|BLOCKS by SIZE||6" Quilt Blocks|
Many quiltmakers like to make six inch quilt blocks in order to use a greater variety of blocks in a sampler style quilt. Another reason might be to test out the look of a block in a smaller size in order to save on the fabrics (just in case the block looks very different than in your imagination).
Whatever your reason for creating six inch blocks, the pieces are all just smaller versions of larger sized quilt blocks -- such as the most popular size, the 12" quilt block. This is what makes quiltmaking so exciting -- you are the designer and get to choose all the components.

The Colorado quilt block is obviously named for the state. It is made up entirely of half square triangles. Placement of the colours in the quilt block will determine the focus and interest in the pattern. It is yours to discover.
The sample quilt layouts are both designed using a side by side block setting. By adding sashing strips to one quilt, you get an entirely different look.
