|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 Woven Chevron is a simple block made up of commonly used patches -- the half square triangle, quarter square triangles and squares. I took the liberty of making the central patch less bulky by using a square in a square patch, rather than four half square triangles, as in the original rendition of this block. This reduces the number of seams in the centre of the block.
You can do all sorts of interesting designs using this four patch block -- (so named as it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid). However, due to my edit of the design as mentioned above, it is easily constructed instead as an uneven nine patch.
