|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.
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Travelled Roads quilt block is one for the beginner quilter as it is fast and easy to make.
This four patch block features simple patches -- squares and half square triangles, (the latter being the first pieced patch you will learn as a new quiltmaker).
An added bonus with this quilt block is its directional nature. By rotating a few or several of the blocks by 90 degrees, the resultant quilt can take on all sorts of interesting design patterns.
