|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.
Just as colour plays an important part in the making of the quilt block, it is also the case when choosing the final components to finish off the quilt. This is evident when you look at the sample quilt layouts illustrated using the Millstone quilt block.
Both of these quilt layouts are designed using the blocks set on point, but provide very different results. Additional colour and fabric is used to make both of these stunning quilts as one-of-a-kind heirlooms.
