|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 Lily Star is another variation of the Ohio Star quilt block. This Lily Star just changes up the centre of the block to use the square in a square patch rather than a simple square. Quarter square triangles are used to finish up this nine patch block and it goes together in no time.
The two sample quilts illustrated both keep the background dark, rather than the usual lighter fabrics. Different looks are achieved in both of these quilts which are set on point. Now it is over to you!
