|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.
Nine Patch Square - Variation
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The 9 Patch Square - Variation quilt block is built on the Nine Patch Square -- a logical assumption. The difference between the two blocks is that the centre in the Variation version has a four patch unit rather than a single square.
In any case, both quilt blocks are effective as evidenced by the illustrated quilts. No difficult patches to make -- just colour choices can make all the difference in the end result.
