|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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Wheel in the Road quilt block is a simple block to make. For those new to the "3/4 square triangle", here is your introduction to that particular quilt patch, which makes up the centre of the block. Other patches include the half square triangle and the flying geese units.
The sample quilts illustrated show how you could lay the quilt blocks either side-by-side or on point to achieve a different look. There is no end to the creativity in designing your own quilt.
