|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.
Sample Quilt Layouts
The Connector Chain quilt block is one of many in this style. "Checkerboard" units draw the eye across the block, and then the whole quilt. This type of block is often used as an alternate block with another choice and this will generate a secondary pattern. All in all it is a simple nine patch block to create.
For the two sample quilt layouts illustrated, I have chosen to feature only this one block, but as you can see, two very different quilts emerge. I have used 90 degree rotations to come up with different layouts using only this one block.
Choose to use sashing strips to separate the blocks and add additional colour, or simply place the blocks side by side for a totally different outcome.
