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.

Crossed Roads to Oklahoma

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Crossed Roads to Oklahoma is technically an eight patch block because it is designed on an 8 x 8 grid. However, since I prefer to sew blocks in "chunks" rather than row by row, this pattern instructs you to construct as an uneven nine patch. The end result is identical, but you have an easier time sewing the block.

There are lots of pieces in this block, but none are difficult to make and the end result is a striking design. Half square triangles, squares, rectangles and a few flying geese patches are all that is in this block. Colour placement is key to the final product.
