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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Jawhawks quilt block is a new one to me ... well at least the name. The patches used in this block are easy to create and therefore this block is a good choice for a beginner quilter.

The nine patch block uses the half square triangle patch for each corner. Flying geese patches are also featured, and if you are a steady reader of this website, you will know that flying geese are my favourite patches. (I have no idea why that is, but I just like to work with them.)

The sample quilts illustrated appear to be similar, but one quilt has the blocks set side by side with sashing strips in between and the second quilt features blocks set on point. Any way you choose to lay out the blocks in your quilt will produce a pleasing and unique end product. That is what makes quilting such a fun and creative activity -- rarely do two quilts using the same blocks look the same!
