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

The Inverted Star quilt block could also be called a "study in half square triangles" since it uses lots of those to create this scrappy block.

The quilt layout illustrated below on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the quilt blocks. Sashing strips separate the blocks and, because I used the same fabric as the background choice, the blocks seem to float.

The quilt layout featured on the right sets the blocks on point with additional blank blocks separating them. The reasoning here is twofold -- to add extra splashes of colour to further enhance the scrappy look of your quilt and as a space to showcase some lovely quilting designs.
