BLOCKS by SIZE 12" Quilt Blocks

A quilter's favourite - the twelve inch quilt block. These are probably the most commonly used. The measurements divide easily and evenly for quick calculations. Whether the goal is a bed-sized quilt or a cuddle quilt in an afghan size, a 12" quilt block is your go-to choice.

The Vestibule quilt block is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter as, despite the image showing lots of triangle pieces, this block is sewn with the easy "sew and flip" method and uses no triangles -- they only show up in the end result.

This quilt block is technically an eight patch since it is designed on an 8 x 8 grid. However, it is sewn as an uneven nine patch due to the size and shapes of the patches.

I have chosen to make this block as a monochromatic "scrappy" version, using all different shades of teal for the main colouring. I decided to maintain a single light fabric which forms the star. This block would look fabulous as a totally scrappy version, making sure to make sure there is lots of contrast between the dark and light fabrics. What will you choose?
