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 Homepun quilt block offers up lots of opportunities to practice sewing half square triangles and flying geese patches. This nine patch block is easy to sew if care is taken to sew an accurate quarter inch seam allowance.

Whether you place the blocks side by side as shown in the quilt layout on the left or on point as the quilt layout on the right, you can see that the placement of colour in the block will then create subtle secondary patterns in the resultant quilts. The flying geese patches in the left quilt seem to be drawing your eye in all four directions, while the right quilt has these same patches form a discrete star shape. What can you design for your quilt?
