|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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern
I wonder what the first first lady would think to have a quilt block named for her? The Martha Washington Star quilt block is a nine patch that could fit into the easy or the intermediate level of difficulty. However, I decided it would be an intermediate quilt block simply because of the number of pieces required to create the block.
This quilt block is a useful one to use as a teaching tool because it contains half square triangles, quarter square triangles as well as flying geese patches -- all of which are commonly used.
