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.

Double Star #2

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Double Star #2 quilt block is, as you might have guessed, based on the Double Star block. The difference is slight, but does add some extra interest -- the centre of the complete quilt block has a square in a square patch, rather than a single square.

This quilt block also features several different common patches, including flying geese units as well as half square triangles and also quarter square triangles, all in two different sizes. So, in fact, you are actually creating a small quilt block inside a larger block. By paying close attention to your quarter inch seam allowance, you will have no difficulty in sewing this block. And, look how different your quilt can look, just by the setting you choose for your quilt blocks.
