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.

Cut Glass Dish

Free Quilt Block Pattern


The Cut Glass Dish quilt block has been around for a long time. There are many variations as well, simply by adjusting the colour placement.

The block is constructed of simple patches -- only the square and half square triangle units. The only difficulty lies in being precise in your seam allowances during construction, due to the number of cut pieces.

The sample quilt layouts illustrate the different looks you can achieve by rotating several of the quilt blocks, whether in a straight set or a quilt set on point. Additionally, I have inserted an extra page in the file to show the quilts in a different colour palette. As you will see, there is no end to the variety of quilts you can create with this one block.
