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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Hands of Friendship quilt block is a nine patch that will give you lots of practice in making half square triangles and a few flying geese patches.

The quilt layout shown below on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks, with sashing strips for separation and added interest. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks on point and takes advantage of the opportunity to complement your colour choices with additional corner setting triangles on each individual block -- for an extra pop of colour and a place to showcase your quilting designs.
