|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 Padre Island Star nine patch quilt block is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter. It contains only squares, rectangles and flying geese patches, and makes a stunning block.
Both of the quilt layouts shown below use an on point setting of the blocks, with very different results. The quilt on the left takes advantage of both whole and half blocks to create this design, complete with blank blocks for a spot to showcase your quilting embellishments.
The quilt layout shown on the right uses a popular setting of the blocks along with sashing strips for extra pops of colour.
