|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 Rat Pack quilt block looks a little boring (at least to me) at first glance. But take a close look at the sample quilt layouts shown below. The directional nature of the quilt block makes for some interesting designs when it comes time to create your own personal quilt. By rotating a single block by 90 degrees or by using a group of four blocks, all sorts of interesting secondary patterns can emerge. Will you create a different effect when using this quilt block?
