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.

Four Corners

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Four Corners quilt block is similar to the Ohio Star block, but the corners make the difference with just the subtle additon of an extra square. The quilt block gives you lots of practice in sewing quarter square triangle patches.

The quilt layout shown below on the left uses a side by side setting of the blocks with some sashing strips for additional colour. The quilt layout on the right uses an on point setting with additional pops of colour in the blank blocks and setting triangles.

Side note - Using the same fabric for the sashing as is used for the background gives the illusion that the quilt blocks are "floating".
