|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.

You might think you recognize the Rolling Stone quilt block as it seems so familiar. Well, you are right -- it is made of all the same components as the Rolling Pin block, but some of the patches are placed in a different direction, and the placement of the colours makes all the difference in the new look of the Rolling Stone block.
*Note ~ These two quilt blocks mentioned above are featured in my downloadable eBook called Sixteen 2 Block Quilts, available for purchase in my Etsy store.
The Rolling Stone block uses a familiar patch -- the flying geese unit and also makes good use of the less common patch -- the square in a square.
