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 Housewife quilt block is a four patch design featuring half square triangles and quarter square triangles so it is a good choice for practising up those two patches. Together here in this block, these two patches create a unit which quilters often refer to a three quarter square triangle patch. This patch creates the pinwheels as the centre of the design.

The second featured quilt patch is the flying geese unit -- another favourite patch for quilters.

By making the different patches and then constructing them as quadrants, you will then create four individual larger patches -- hence the "four patch" label for this block.
