|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 Isabelle Star quilt block is a nine patch design with an intermediate level quilter in mind.
There are no difficult units to construct in this block, but you do get to try out three different patches -- the half square triangles, used as cut pieces along with quarter square triangles to create the patches which quilters often refer to as three-quarter square triangles. Four patch "checkerboards" are used in each of the corners of this star quilt block.
