|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.

Naturally this is the perfect choice for a quilt for your own favourite "Sarah". (Note how I slipped in the spelling change here to favourite, as I am a Canadian, and to me, the word looks naked without that extra "u". However, I stuck with the true block name spelling in the title!)
This four patch quilt block is an easy one to construct. It is sewn in four identical quadrants and those are then simply rotated. Half square triangles and squares are all that this block needs.
I decided this is a perfect choice for a "scrappy" block -- using up all your little tidbits left over from other projects. But, it looks great as just a two colour block as well.
Both of the quilts illustrated are made by setting the blocks on point but with subtle changes, they look entirely different. Now it is over to you to create a quilt for your favourite Sarah!
