|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 Flying Diamond quilt block is kind of a "double nine patch" as the centre is made of a small nine patch block and then it is extended into a larger nine patch block by adding half square triangles in the four corners and flying geese patches as well, in the outer rows.
This simple quilt block would be a good choice for teachers to introduce all of these patches as mentioned above.
The two sample quilts illustrated are both created with on point settings and as you can see they are very different. Your imagination is all that limits you for creating your own special heirloom.
