|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.

The Cups and Saucers quilt block is the perfect pattern choice to learn a variety of piecing techniques. It contains flying geese, half square triangles and a square in a square patch. A great nine patch quilt block for beginners to advanced quilters alike.
The two sample quilts shown are wonderful examples of how different a quilt can look, just by changing the quilt block orientation from side by side to an "on point" setting.
