|BLOCKS by SIZE||12" Quilt Blocks|
A quilter's favourite - the twelve inch quilt block. These are probably the most commonly used. The measurements divide easily and evenly for quick calculations. Whether the goal is a bed-sized quilt or a cuddle quilt in an afghan size, a 12" quilt block is your go-to choice.
Both of the sample quilt layouts illustrated using the Lucky Clover quilt block set the blocks on point. The quilt on the left uses additional half blocks and sashing, which (to me) gives a look of "plaid". The quilt on the right uses fewer quilt blocks, but adds additional interest by changing up colours of the extra large triangles and also adding sashing between the blocks.
