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 Star quilt block is an old favourite of quilters and it is a wonderful choice for a stand-alone block or is frequently used as the centre in another quilt block.

The quilt layout shown below on the left sets the blocks side by side with sashing strips to separate them. An extra fabric is introduced here to complement the existing colour choice.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the block on point and adds large corner triangles to each, to increase the quilt size. By alternating different fabric choices on these corner triangles and laying them side by side, you achieve a sort of "colour blocking" result in your quilt.
