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.

Garden Block

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Garden Block is the perfect choice for the beginner quilter. It contains only the two most commonly used patches in quiltmaking -- the square and the half square triangle. These units in this nine patch quilt block, are the first patches that most beginner quilters learn to start their quiltmaking journey.

Both of the sample quilts illustrated are set on point but give two very different looks. By switching up the colours or using more colours than I have shown here, your quilt will soon become a family favourite.
