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.

Puss in the Corner

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Puss in the Corner quilt block would be considered an intermediate level block for the simple reason that there are many patches to create the design. However, none of the pieces are complicated and careful attention to your sewing precision will yield a wonderful result. So, perhaps you should consider this nine patch block as an easy addition to your quilt block library. Secondary designs can appear also, depending on how you use this block in a quilt.

The two sample quilts shown illustrate setting the quilt blocks on point with sashing, or in a straight set, with each block next to the other. Note the difference the end result makes.
