|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.
Sample Quilt LayoutsThe Indiana Puzzle is a simple nine patch quilt block featuring patches that make frequent appearances in quiltmaking -- half square triangles. Little "checkerbaords" made from small squares finish off the look.
Whether you choose to set the quilt blocks side by side as in the quilt layout on the left, with or without sashing strips to separate the blocks, or use an on point quilt layout as shown on the right, your resultant quilt will be striking and a welcome addition to any home.
