|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 Union Square quilt block is one of many that is based on the Ohio Star block. Union Square dresses up the corners of this nine patch. Below, you will find links to other quilt blocks that are similar, but still uniquely their own.
The sample quilts illustrated use basic layouts -- one quilt set on point and the second one has blocks set side by side. This simple change up gives a totally different look.
