|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.

This Mosaic quilt block is a version of the Disappearing Nine Patch, designed for hand piecers (although you may choose to sew by machine as well). You will get the same effect, but there are just more and smaller cut pieces. However, since all pieces are either squares or rectangles, the block is quick and easy to construct.
This four patch quilt block is generally designed with a "scrappy" quilt as the end product. Depending on how you lay out the blocks, you can design all sorts of interesting quilts.
