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.

Jersey Basket

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Jersey Basket quilt block is a another easy block because it contains only squares and half square triangles. It is constructed in the method of a four patch, by dividing the sections of the block into quadrants and then sewing those quadrants together. All in all, this is a wonderful block to get you started on your quiltmaking journey.

The two sample quilts illustrated show the quilt blocks rotated here and there to create a secondary pattern, or just to have a flow to the quilts.
