|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 Jersey Basket quilt block is a simple four patch. The only pieced patches used are half square triangles, so this block is a good choice for a beginner quilter.
In most instances, basket quilt blocks are designed with the focus of the block on the diagonal. This allows for 90 degree rotations of the blocks, either individually or in grouping of four blocks, to produce a secondary design when each block is placed next to another.
The sample quilt layout shown on the left uses those groupings of four blocks to produce a new look. The quilt layout on the right uses an on point setting of the blocks, with some of the blocks rotated in order to make the quilt have no specific top or bottom. Additional blank blocks add a colourful spot to place quilting motifs to show off your quilting skills.
