|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.
Sample Quilt Layouts
Two sample quilt layouts featuring the seasonal Poinsettia quilt block, both quilts designed with the idea of the beautiful poinsettia plants on a black velvet cloth.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses a diagonal setting of the blocks with a framework of red at top and bottom of the quilt for an extra splash of colour.
The quilt layout featured on the right also sets the blocks on point and adds large corner triangles to each block in various colours to produce a glowing star in the centre.
