|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 Ts in a Ring quilt block is one of many "T" block designs. This version features lots of half square triangles for practising up on this common quilt patch.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks side by side with the central, blank area the perfect spot for a larger, overall quilt design. The controlled scrappy design continues in the whole quilt.
The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks on point and includes lots of blank areas to enhance the medallion design and a place to showcase your quilting skills.
