|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 actually two blocks in one -- a nine patch "checkerboard" for the centre of the block and then this completed patch is surrounded by flying geese units and half square triangles.
Both of the sample quilt layouts shown below use an on point setting of the blocks. Each quilt shines on its own with additional blank blocks for extra pops of colour and/or sashing strips to separate the blocks. There is no end to the designs you can create using this simple quilt block.
