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.

Forest Campfire

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Forest Campfire quilt block is an easy nine patch block containing one of my favourite patches - flying geese units. Secondly, it features three quarter square triangle patches, so named as the patch contains three triangles filling up a square. The unit itself is made using both half square triangles and quarter square triangles.

The sample quilts illustrated feature blocks set side by side as well as on point with sashing to give two totally different looks in the end.
