|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.

The Sawtooth Star quilt block has been around for a very long time. You will find it featured in hundreds of quilts. The block itself is often featured as the centre of another quilt block, such as the Sawtooth Ladder.
This quilt block is often used as a teaching tool to introduce the flying geese patch. It is a great choice for beginners and experienced quilters alike.
