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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Sawtooth Ladder quilt block is a sort of enhanced version of the Sawtooth Star block.

Both of the quilt layouts illustrated below use an on point setting of the blocks and separate them with sashing strips. The quilt design featured on the left is created with a standard layout of the blocks, finishing with side setting triangles.

The quilt layout shown on the right enlarges each individual block with large corner triangles in alternating colours on opposite sides. This then adds an extra design element to your resultant quilt.
