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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Sunny Day quilt block is a four patch (or an eight patch) design , but, in this case, is constructed as an uneven nine patch, simply for ease in the sewing process. There are lots of little four patch units (forming "checkerboards") within the overall design, giving you lots of opportunity to practice up on those patches.

Although there are lots of seams in this block, the patches are limited to squares and half square triangles to form this design. The directional nature of the block leads to all sorts of interesting possibilites for your resultant quilt. Two examples are shown on the following page.
