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.

Mother's Dream

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Mother's Dream quilt block is a simple four patch design featuring patches you first learn as you begin your quiltmaking journey.

This block uses several half square triangle patches and then uses quarter square triangles and also half square triangle pieces to create what many quilters refer to as a three quarter square triangle patch. All in all, this is a fun block to create.
