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.

Little Boat

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Little Boat quilt block is simple to construct using only squares, rectangles and half square triangles. That special little boy in your life would love a quilt designed using all the possibilities of this block.

The quilt layout on the left takes a scrappy approach to the design, using all sort of fabrics for the "sails" and the "boats". Also, this quilt design flips the direction of some of the sails and -- if you look closely -- you will see that one poor sailor had a mishap. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks side by side once again, but adds extra blank blocks for a favourite colour and a spot to showcase your quilting designs.
