|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.
The My Fancy quilt block gives you lots of opportunity to experiment with colour for your quilt. I have chosen to make a monochrome look to my designs just for the change.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks side by side for a very busy geometric effect as a secondary pattern emerges.
The quilt layout shown on the right sets the block on point with lots of blank blocks for extra shots of colour. Placement of these blank areas of colour can cause a secondary pattern to emerge as well. (Can you see hearts?)
