|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 Good Cheer quilt block contains only simple patches -- squares, rectangles and flying geese units. The small squares (the light fabric in the sample block) create a meandering path when you place the many blocks into the quilt.
The quilt layout shown below on the left features blocks set on point with "corner" triangles for each block. This allows for additional colour placement of your choice for these large triangles, to add some extra pizzazz to the quilt. The quilt layout on the right shows blocks set side by side and as a result, the tiny squares lead the eye to the stars in the centre of each block. All sorts of interesting possibilities can be achieved just with the arrangement that you choose for your own quilt layout.
