|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 Corn and Beans quilt block offers up the chance to use fabric values as opposites -- in particular the dark and the medium values of the fabrics. This lends itself to very different results when creating your personal quilt. These two sample quilts below use two different styles of setting the quilt blocks.
The left quilt layout sets the blocks side by side producing an interesting secondary pattern of diagonals in the two different colours. The right quilt layout sets the blocks on point, producing vertical and horizontal motifs. This last quilt layout allows for the additional pop of colour in the setting triangles on the edges of the quilt design.
