|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 Glad Tidings quilt block is a different choice for those quilting teachers out there. It is sometimes nice to deviate from the "usual" blocks used in a class of new quiltmakers.
This nine patch design features the square in a square patch as well as the ever popular flying geese unit. The colour placement of some of the fabrics reveals a subdued star in the centre of the design. (Perhaps that is where the block name Glad Tidings comes from -- as a note to the biblical reference? -- Just a thought.)
