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.

Ornate Star

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Ornate Star quilt block moves on from the Ohio Star, an old favourite of quilters. By additional patches in the corners, a more "ornate" design is created -- hence the name.

The quilt layout shown below on the left adds some pizzazz to the blocks by adding corner triangles to each block in a variety of fabrics, and then sets the blocks on point. This "colour blocking" makes for a very dazzling quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses an on point setting of the blocks, framing each block with sashing strips for a totally different look.
