|BLOCKS by SIZE||6" Quilt Blocks|
Many quiltmakers like to make six inch quilt blocks in order to use a greater variety of blocks in a sampler style quilt. Another reason might be to test out the look of a block in a smaller size in order to save on the fabrics (just in case the block looks very different than in your imagination).
Whatever your reason for creating six inch blocks, the pieces are all just smaller versions of larger sized quilt blocks -- such as the most popular size, the 12" quilt block. This is what makes quiltmaking so exciting -- you are the designer and get to choose all the components.

The Indian Star quilt block is made of simple, common quilt patches -- the square and the flying geese unit. Although technically a four patch (as it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid), it is constructed as an uneven nine patch for ease in construction.
This is a perfect choice for the beginner quilter. You are limited only in your imagination for how your quilt will be designed using this block.
