|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.
The Love in the Mist sample quilt layouts use the blocks in standard settings. The quilt on the left features a centre section that is the perfect spot to showcase a lovely quilting design. The right quilt layout features extra colour in the blank blocks as well as sashing strips to separate them and add additional interest.
Either of these romantic choices would make the perfect quilt to present to that special someone in your life.
