|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 sample quilt layouts illustrated show just how versatile this block is.
The quilt layout on the left features the blocks set side by side and separated by sashing strips. The quilt layout on the right uses blocks set on point and also uses sashing strips and setting triangles for more colour options and a spot to feature your quilting designs. Two very different resultant quilts.
