|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.
Vibrant quilts can result when using this Nine Patch Square quilt block. The sample quilt layout illustrated below on the left uses a standard side by side block setting and results in a quilt that "reads" as light. The quilt layout shown on the right uses a dark background fabric for the extra blank blocks and ends up being a dark quilt. The sashing strips between the blocks add that extra punch of colour.
