|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 Tulip Tracks quilt block might be just the one you need to start off the spring season. I just stayed with two different colours for the flowers, but depending on your colour choices for the tulips in the block, you could create a quilt with a whole garden of gorgeous blooms in a large variety of colours.
This easy nine patch design features only squares and half square triangles -- the perfect choice for those of you who are new to quiltmaking.
