BLOCKS by SIZE 12" Quilt Blocks

A quilter's favourite - the twelve inch quilt block. These are probably the most commonly used. The measurements divide easily and evenly for quick calculations. Whether the goal is a bed-sized quilt or a cuddle quilt in an afghan size, a 12" quilt block is your go-to choice.

Napa Valley

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Napa Valley quilt block is a nine patch design featuring the two most frequently used pieced patches -- the flying geese unit and the half square triangle. Lastly, the centre patch is one that is underused -- at least in my opinion -- and that is the square in a square.

All in all, these common patches go together nicely to form a double star shape. Also note, that I used colours that remind me of drinking wine while enjoying a sunset in the Napa Valley, just because of the name of the block. [pats self on the back]
