|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.
Mystery Flower Garden
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Mystery Flower Garden quilt block is a wonderful choice for a teaching project for new quilters.
This nine patch design features the quarter square triangle and also uses the half square triangle as part of a patch that quilters sometimes refer to as a three quarter square triangle. See if you can spot it.
Tapping into the name of the block, I used several different colours of fabrics to be the "flowers" in the mystery garden. This is a great way to use up some of that stash.
