|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 quilt block is a simple four patch design that offers lots of opportunities for the design of a unique quilt.
The quilt layout shown below on the left sets the blocks vertically, and rotates alternate blocks by 180 degrees to form a matching coloured chain design.
The quilt layout featured on the right, also flips some of the blocks just as the vertical layout, but the side by side setting gives the appearance of a very different look.
