|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.

If I was choosing a name for this four patch quilt block I likely would have used the word Pinwheel in the name. However, this block is called Fan, and I suppose that is correct too, as a pinwheel or a fan would both generate a breeze.
So enough of my musings. This quilt block is a great starter block, for those who are just beginning their quiltmaking journey. The block introduces you to the flying geese unit, a frequent patch in quilt blocks. I have provided instructions for making several different sizes of this quilt block.
The sample quilts illustrated give you some general ideas on laying out the blocks to make your quilt.
