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 Susannah quilt block is technically a four patch design, but I took a few liberties with the block -- to make it easier to sew.

This block is now constructed as an uneven nine patch because I did away with the centre as it was designed -- as four individual half square triangle patches sewn together. By using the square in a square patch instead, there are fewer seams and therefore, less bulk. Also, I made it even easier by sewing this centre patch using the "sew and flip" method of corner triangles.

This quilt block is easy and effective and makes for some striking quilts as a result.
