|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.
The New Mexico quilt block features half square triangles and quarter square triangles to form a double pinwheel design.
The quilt layout illustrated below on the left sets the blocks on point and adds extra splashes of colour in the form of the blank blocks. These give the perfect spot to showcase your quilting design in the quilt.
The quilt layout featured on the right also sets the blocks on point. The blocks are enlarged by adding large corner triangles to each. With careful colour placement of these large triangles, you can achieve a sort of "colour blocking" design in the resultant quilt.
