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.

Kansas Troubles

Sample Quilt Layouts


The quilt layout shown on the left featuring the Kansas Troubles quilt block uses a standard side by side block setting and sashing strips add some extra colour to the quilt.

The quilt layout on the right uses the blocks set on point, with careful colour placement of the large corner triangles added to each block. Note also, that in this example quilt, I have flipped half of the blocks as mirror images during the construction stage to achieve the pinwheels as a desired end result. The creation process for the resultant quilt is half the fun!
