|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.
Ts in a Ring
Free Quilt Block Pattern
There are many versions of "T" blocks. The Ts in a Ring quilt block uses four "Ts" and rotates them in each of the four quadrants of the block.
This quilt block is made only with squares and half square triangles, but in two different sizes. I have chosen to make this quilt block as a scrappy version in a "controlled" colour palette, using a variety of fabrics for the dark parts of each half square triangle.
When you construct this block as a four patch, you will be surprised at how quickly all the parts go together.
