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.

Folded Corners

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Folded Corners quilt block is sort of an optical illusion, if you stick to colours in the same colour family. By using a slightly lighter shade of the darkest colour in the four corners of the block, it appears that each corner is folded into the centre -- hence the name of the block.

This easy quilt block is a standard nine patch utilizing half square triangles and flying geese patches -- both very commonly used patches in quiltmaking.
