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

These two sample quilt layouts shown below use the Illinois quilt block in very different resultant quilts.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks on point for a geometric design that looks much like a "Wild Goose Chase" quilt design as the flying geese patches cross over each other in a diagonal manner.

The quilt layout featured on the right sets the blocks side by side in a standard setting. The different border treatment gives the quilt an extra design element for interest.
