|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.

For those of you looking to make a quilt for that little boy in your life -- look no further than the Little Boat quilt block. This simple block can allow you to use up some of that fabric stash you have been hoarding -- (oops, I must be speaking about myself, as I have a huge fabric stash!). Lots of colourful sails made using half square triangles can make this a really special quilt for that young man in your life.
The sample quilts illustrated feature a scrappy version and a quilt with extra blank blocks to show off your quilting skills. Let the fun begin!
