|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 sample quilt layouts shown below using the Fresh Start block, both use standard settings with very different outcomes.
The quilt layout featured on the left, sets the blocks side by side, but due to the directional nature of the block, uses 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks to produce a subtle, secondary design of large stars. (You might have to look closely to see them.)
The quilt layout illustrated on the right, sets all of the block on point to give an entirely different look. (I see shapes that resemble hanging lanterns. Do you?)
