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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Love and Kisses quilt block offers all sorts of design possibilities for your quilt layouts.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses a standard on point setting of the blocks, with lots of added colour pops in the form of extra blank blocks, which do double duty for a perfect spot to show off an interesting quilting design.

The quilt layout featured on the right also uses a diagonal block setting, with extra colour in the form of blank areas, but with very different results.
