|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.
Both of the quilt layouts shown below using the Hidden Star quilt block set the blocks on the diagonal, (also known as on point).
The quilt layout featured on the left adds large corner triangles to each of the blocks. These larger blocks are then set side by side to create the resultant quilt. What makes this quilt stand out is the careful placement of colour of those large triangle pieces to add a new design element to the quilt.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses sashing strips of the same colour as the background. This gives the appearance of the blocks floating in the night sky, while the tiny "cornerstones" in this sashing appear to be smaller stars twinkling.
