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.

Triple Star

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Triple Star quilt block is an enjoyable block to make as it uses a different approach to block construction than most blocks you will make, and that is to piece it on the diagonal.

The quilt layout illustrated below on the left takes individual blocks and enlarges then by adding corner triangles in different colours to create a secondary central motif in the resultant quilt.

The quilt layout on the right uses a standard setting of the blocks placed on point and separated with sashing strips, for an additional design element and extra pop of colour.
