|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 Spool and Bobbin quilt block, a four patch design, is easy to sew and features lots of variety in the design process.
The quilt layout featured on the left makes use of the directional nature of the blocks and with simple 90 degree rotations and utilizing careful placement of the blocks, creates a geometric "x and o" design. (You will have to look closely.)
The quilt layout illustrated on the right adds large corner triangle patches to each block, thereby enlarging each one, and uses a colour blocking technique to create a strong visual effect in the bigger blank areas -- a perfect spot for a spectacular quilting design.
