|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.
This is an interesting quilt block -- Disappearing Nine Patch -- as, although the name indicates "nine patch", you just don't see it. That's the magic of the "disappearing" part. Simple construction of a nine patch is then followed by recutting the block and then reconstructing those new, cut pieces.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below use the standard quilt layouts -- a side by side block setting and an on point block setting -- with very different results. There is no end to the fun you can have when using this quilt block. And -- the extra good news is that all of the pieces you start with are simply squares! Enjoy the fun!
** For Hand Piecers - Use the Mosaic quilt block pattern instead.
