|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.
The Split Ohio Star quilt block takes advantage of the obvious dark and light sides to the block.
The quilt layout illustrated below on the left takes a two colour approach to the quilt and uses 90 degree rotations of many of the blocks to create an interesting geometric design.
The quilt layout featured on the right also uses two colours for the quilt. However, by using many different blue fabrics, it becomes a striking "scrappy" quilt but still "reads" as a blue and white quilt.
There are no end to the unique designs that can be created using this block, due in large part to its directional attributes.
