|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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Love and Kisses quilt block is traditional nine patch design, featuring only simple shapes.
Squares, rectangles and half square triangles are the only patches used in this block -- which is a perfect learning experience if you are new to quiltmaking.
You will note that there is a subtle directional aspect to the block which allows for all sorts of interesting design opportunities. A simple 90 degree rotation of some of the blocks will create a whole new look for your final quilt.
