|BLOCKS by SIZE||6" Quilt Blocks|
Many quiltmakers like to make six inch quilt blocks in order to use a greater variety of blocks in a sampler style quilt. Another reason might be to test out the look of a block in a smaller size in order to save on the fabrics (just in case the block looks very different than in your imagination).
Whatever your reason for creating six inch blocks, the pieces are all just smaller versions of larger sized quilt blocks -- such as the most popular size, the 12" quilt block. This is what makes quiltmaking so exciting -- you are the designer and get to choose all the components.

The Dublin Steps quilt block is a simple nine patch design featuring basic units in quiltmaking -- squares and half square triangles.
This easy quilt block would make a nice change for selection when leading a new beginner class in quiltmaking. The directional nature of the block leads to all sorts of interesting possibilities when designing your final quilt.
