|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.
Sample Quilt Layouts
The Tulip Tracks quilt block is an easy choice to use to make up a quilt in no time to celebrate the spring season.
The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks on point with lots of colour splashes, matching the colours of the "tulips" by way of extra blank blocks. The added bonus is that this also increases the size of your quilt without lots of extra work.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses an on point block setting and separates the whole and half blocks with sashing strips. This produces a very different look with an overall geometric design. All in all, you can't go wrong with choosing this lovely, and simple quilt block for your quilt.
