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.

Crowning Glory

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Even though it is commonly thought that a woman's hair is her crowning glory, I also see a "crown" in this quilt block. So, I decided to use the "royal" colours of purple and gold to go along with the title of this Crowning Glory.

This nine patch design features half square triangle cut patches as well as quarter square triangles to form the crown. This quilt block gives you lots of practice using these two common shapes in the design.
