|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.
Next Door Neighbor
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Next Door Neighbor quilt block (or in my "neck of the woods" it would be spelled Next Door Neighbour), is a wonderful choice as a learning tool for a beginner quilter.
This block is comprised of only half square triangles, (which are the first pieced patches you will learn), and squares. This four patch design will make a perfect addition to your collection of pinwheel blocks.
