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.

Love in the Mist

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Love in the Mist quilt block was a new one to me -- and as is my practice -- I immediately began simplifying it to reduce the number of seams. The look of the end result is the same -- it just is less bulky.

This nine patch quilt block is an easy one to make featuring half square triangles and square in a square patches.

The two sample quilts illustrated show blocks set side by side and in an on point layout.
