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.

Rocky Road to Dublin

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Rocky Road to Dublin quilt block is an easy block created using simple and common patches -- squares and half square triangles.

This nine patch design is effective because of your chosen fabrics to make it sparkle.

The added benefit of this design is that it has a directional nature. This feature allows your creative juices to come forth by 90 degree rotations of some individual or groupings of blocks. Check out some sample quilts on the next page
