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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

This "block within a block" called Dancing Shoofly is fun and easy to create. It contains only squares, rectangles and flying geese patches so works up quickly.

The two sample quilt layouts shown below both utilize extra pops of colour in the form of blank blocks (to showcase your quilting designs) and sashing strips to separate the blocks. Both of these designs use an on point quilt block layout but perhaps your quilt will use a standard side by side block setting. This is what makes quiltmaking such a fun hobby -- you get to be the designer.
