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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

I love quilt blocks like this Road to Kansas block because of their obvious directional nature. This presents all sorts of interesting possibilities when it comes to making your quilt.

At first glance, this four patch block is pretty straightforward. It contains only half square triangles and two different sized squares. The fun begins when you start to rotate the blocks in your quilt placement.

The two sample quilts illustrated show you exactly what I mentioned above. One quilt is set on point while the other features the blocks in a side by side format. Both feature some of the blocks rotated by 90 degrees which in turn makes for lots of variations. What can you come up with?
