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.

I took advantage of the name of this quilt block -- Sunshine -- to choose my colours. And ... since we all need a little sunshine in our lives, I thought the brighter the better.

This four patch quilt block is made of simple shapes -- only the square and the half square triangle patches. However, due to the number of pieces needed to create this wonderful quilt block, I have designated it as an intermediate level of difficulty. By taking your time and paying careful attention to the precision in making your quarter inch seam allowances, you will construct a perfect block in no time.

The sample quilts illustrated give you ideas on how to lay out your quilt blocks, with or without sashing. Enjoy!
