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.

Fanny's Favorite - A Variation

Sample Quilt Layouts


This Fanny's Favorite Variation quilt block is obviously an adaptation of the Fanny's Favorite block. This new block is a continuation of the skills you have learned, by adding additional pieces and hence, more interest to the block. The newest patch is the flying geese unit, but there are lots of easy pieces in the form of squares and rectangles too.

For these two quilts illustrated below, I chose to use an almost monochromatic colour scheme in the blocks and then in the quilt layouts. By laying out the blocks side by side or on point, you achieve two very different quilts. Which will you choose, or will you design a quilt layout of your own?
