|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.
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Indian Star quilt block is made of simple, common quilt patches -- the square and the flying geese unit. You are limited only in your imagination for how your quilt will be designed using this block.
The sample quilts illustrated show a straight setting of the quilt block, with alternate blocks rotated by 90 degrees, resulting in a secondary pattern emerging. Secondly, by setting the blocks on point, you can achieve totally different results. Let the design process begin!
