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.

Fan Waves

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Fan Waves quilt block is two blocks in one. It is a nine patch as the centre of an uneven nine patch block. The block features half square triangles and flying geese units, all arranged to make a pinwheel within a star. All in all, this is a wonderful "learning" quilt block.

The two sample quilt layouts illustrated below both use an on point block setting. However, each quilt looks very different from the other. Adding the extra blank blocks and/or setting triangles gives the opportunity for more colour interest and a place to spotlight your quilting skills.
