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.

If there is another quilt block by the name Sweet Pea, I have been unable to find it. So, I made it up. It is a simple block to make, but has many possibilities depending on how you set the blocks in your quilt.

To add more interest to this nine patch block, you might choose to make the centre square in another fabric rather than the background fabric. This would add even more colour to your resultant block. All in all, it does not get much easier than to sew this block. And, don't be fooled into thinking that this is a boring block. Simple blocks can make for striking quilts as you will see on the following page.
