|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 Square Variation
Sample Quilt Layouts
The Four Square Variation quilt block offers up all sorts of interesting possibilies for your quilt designs simply by taking note of the directional nature of the quilt block.
The quilt layout featured below on the left illustrates this. Note the subtle secondary patterns emerging of stars appearing when four of the blocks meet up adjacent to each other.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks on point with large corner triangles applied to each block. Depending on the selection of colours for these larger triangles, an additional, subtle vertical design emerges when the blocks are set side by side in your quilt.
