|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.

I love the Weathervane quilt block. It can be a great teaching aid for beginner quilters because it uses three different quilt patches -- the square, half square triangle and flying geese units. For quilters who like to play with colour, try introducing more fabrics and you will come up with a totally different looking quilt block.
The two sample quilts illustrate how different you can make your project. By added more blocks and setting on point, or using less quilt blocks and adding additional blank blocks you get two totally different quilts. Blank quilt blocks also give you the opportunity to show off your quilting skills.
