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.

Gettysburg

Sample Quilt Layouts


There are lots of opportunities to practice up on your piecing skills when you create the Gettysburg quilt block. Sew half square triangles and square in a square patches to create this lovely nine patch block.

Both of these sample quilt layouts are using a on point setting of the blocks. However, whether you want an "overall" look or want extra pops of colour in your quilt, both ideas are shown here. The choice is yours (or use a design of your own).
