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.

Roll of the Dice

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This Roll of the Dice is a nice choice for a beginner quilter. It is easy to construct and introduces two common quilt patches -- the half square triangle and the square in a square patch.

Although this block is technically a four patch (so named as it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid), with the changes I made to the pattern, it is now constructed as an uneven nine patch.

The two sample quilts illustrated show different settings for the block -- an on point setting as well as a side by side layout with sashing. The sashing uses two different fabrics in order to give a "stair step" effect. (It is subtle but gives just a little more interest to the block.)
