|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 two quilt layouts shown below using the nine patch Swamp Patch quilt block both set the blocks on point, with very different results.
The quilt layout on the left enlarges each block with corner triangles in different fabrics to create a larger block and make a sort of "frame" along the outer edges of the quilt.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses a light fabric for the extra blank blocks and outer setting triangles to create an illustion of a meandering design throughout the quilt.
