|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 Twilight Star quilt block expands on the features in the Ohio Star block, by the addition of half square triangles to the already present quarter square triangle patches.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below both use the on point setting. The addition of extra blank blocks and/or sashing strips, offer more opportunities for a punch of colour as well as a place to showcase your quilting skills.
