|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.
You get lots of practice in sewing your pieced patches for this Entwined Star quilt block -- half square triangles, quarter square triangles and square in a square patches.
Both of the quilt layouts shown below use an on point setting of the blocks. The left quilt looks like a meandering chain rather than the star as in the name of the quilt block. The right quilt layout uses lots of blank blocks for extra colour and a spot to show off your quilting designs. There are numerous quilt layouts that can be designed using this easy nine patch quilt block.
