|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 Nelson's Victory quilt block is a simple four patch design featuring only squares and half square triangle patches.
This block would be a perfect choice for a new quilter as it is easy to sew and is a wonderful block to learn about patchwork.
Upon close examination, the patches are set so that there are two contrasting pinwheels to make the subtle design.
