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

These two sample quilt layouts illustrate how simple 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks can make for a very interesting design.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks side by side in groupings of four blocks. Two of those blocks are rotated by 90 degrees to form a large star in the centre of an "X".

The quilt layout featured on the right uses the rotations in a different way to produce an interesting geometric design for your final quilt.
