|BLOCKS by SIZE||6" Quilt Blocks|
Many quiltmakers like to make six inch quilt blocks in order to use a greater variety of blocks in a sampler style quilt. Another reason might be to test out the look of a block in a smaller size in order to save on the fabrics (just in case the block looks very different than in your imagination).
Whatever your reason for creating six inch blocks, the pieces are all just smaller versions of larger sized quilt blocks -- such as the most popular size, the 12" quilt block. This is what makes quiltmaking so exciting -- you are the designer and get to choose all the components.
Flock of Geese
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Flock of Geese quilt block looks rather simple at first glance -- and the good news is that it is an easy block to construct. But, don't let 'simple' fool you. There is a multitude of ways to lay out your quilt and make a totally different result than your friend -- all with this easy quilt block. This is evidenced in the two sample quilts illustrated. Imagine what you could come up with just with a few rotations of the block here and there.
This quilt block is made entirely of half square triangles. in two different sizes. This four patch block is fun to use to play around with your scraps to make any number of colourful quilts. I have chosen to make a 'blue' quilt, with all sorts of different darks and lights in a variety of blues.
