|BLOCKS by SIZE||6" Quilt Blocks|
Many quiltmakers like to make six inch quilt blocks in order to use a greater variety of blocks in a sampler style quilt. Another reason might be to test out the look of a block in a smaller size in order to save on the fabrics (just in case the block looks very different than in your imagination).
Whatever your reason for creating six inch blocks, the pieces are all just smaller versions of larger sized quilt blocks -- such as the most popular size, the 12" quilt block. This is what makes quiltmaking so exciting -- you are the designer and get to choose all the components.

The Swamp Angel quilt block is an adaptation of the Ohio Star block. By switching up the corner patches (from squares in the Ohio Star block), your design becomes a little more complicated, but still easy to sew. Squares, half square triangles and quarter square triangles are the only units used in this block.
