|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 Lover's Lane quilt block is a nine patch design featuring half square triangles and an often underused quilt patch (at least in my opinion), called the square in a square.
I chose this colour palette of purples and oranges as I thought it might represent the sky at sunset over a "lover's lane". Subtle stars are there, which would show up later in the night sky. Oh, the romance of it all!
