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

I love to work with quilt layouts featuring blocks with an obvious directional nature to them. This opens up all sorts of interesting possibilities for designs -- just by simple 90 degree rotations of the blocks, or groupings of blocks.

The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks side by side, rotating blocks here and there to create this geometric design for the quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses an on point block setting and also rotates many of the blocks to create a totally different design. The setting triangles along the edges give the opportunity to add an extra element of colour to the quilt.

It's hard to even remember that the quilt block used was a bridal bouquet once your make all these rotations of the blocks in the quilt. Enjoy your own design process!
