|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 two sample quilts layouts shown below both use an on point setting of the blocks, but with very different results.
The quilt layout featured on the left uses additional blank blocks with the background colour, which produces "negative space", and thereby making the blocks pop. The colourful edge treatment using even more scrap fabric gives extra splashes of colour to the resultant quilt.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right increases each block by adding large corner triangles. The variety of colour choices for these large triangles form an extra design in the quilt. Each block is also separated by sashing strips to increase the eye-catching appeal of this design.
