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.

Royal Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Royal Star quilt block might look vaguely familiar. It is quite similar to the Weathervane block, but with additional flying geese patches replacing the rectangles. Personally, I don't see a "star" as the name would indicate, but it is a pretty block. An added bonus is that now you have two more suggested layouts for whichever block you choose to make.

Half square triangles also make an appearance in this nine patch block. These two pieced patches mentioned are the most commonly used units (other than the square) in quiltmaking.

The two sample quilts illustrated both use an on point setting of the blocks. But, as you can see, you can achieve entirely different looks in your personal quilt.
