|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.
The Double Star quilt block adds just that little extra something as it is a block inside of a block. As a result, you get more interest in your quilt designs.
Both quilt layouts illustrated below feature the blocks separated by sashing strips to add additional colour. The quilt layout on the left features the blocks set on point with lots of space to show off your quilting skills in the side triangles. The right quilt layout uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks, where the stars seem to stand out even more.
