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.

Flock of Birds

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Flock of Birds quilt block is a simple four patch design featuring only simple patches -- squares and half square triangles.

As you can see from the images shown below, you can achieve two very different quilts using this block. The quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks, and by using 90 degree rotations of many of the blocks, a secondary pattern emerges. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks on point and adds that extra pop of colour with the extra blank blocks and setting triangles.
