|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.
The Firewheel quilt block is an eight patch but sewn (for ease in construction) as an uneven nine patch. It contains only the simplest of pieced patches -- half square triangles and flying geese.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below both use an on point setting of the blocks. But, with different placement of the pieced blocks as well as the blank blocks, you achieve two very different and striking quilts. My goal was to represent lots of "wheels of fire" in the night sky and I am pleased with the outcome.
