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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

Two sample quilt layouts showing the Crossroads America quilt block in very different resultant quilts.

The quilt layout featured on the left sets each block side by side to indicate two very distinct paths for you to choose between.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets each block on point. The blocks are enlarged by adding large corner triangles to each. When these larger blocks are placed side by side, the colourful pattern emerges due to the careful placement of the fabrics used for the corner triangles.
