|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 two sample quilt layouts shown below both use an on point setting of the blocks -- but with very different results. It is almost hard to imagine that these quilts were created using the same block.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets both whole and half blocks on a diagonal and separates them with sashing strips to add an extra design element.
The quilt layout featured on the right adds larger corner triangles to each block, thus enlarging them. The careful colour placement of these larger triangles is what gives a whole different look to the resultant quilt.
