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.

Eight Hands Round

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Eight Hands Round, (also called Eight Hands Around) quilt block gives you lots of ideas for using this colourful block in your personal quilt.

Both of the quilt layouts illustrated below use an on point setting of the blocks and also separate those blocks with sashing strips. However, the resultant quilts look very different.

The quilt layout featured on the left uses both whole pieced blocks and half blocks to surround a central motif created using colourful blank blocks to feature your quilting designs.

The quilt layout on the right adds the extra splashes of colour in the form of the setting triangles on the outer edges of the quilt.

Different border treatments give an additional design element to your quilt.
