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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

Use a quilt layout that places the Garden Path blocks side by side for an interesting geometric look to the blocks. Or set the quilt blocks on point with additional, colourful, blank blocks to add some extra interest to your quilt. Sashing strips can further accentuate the design.
