|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.
Sample Quilt Layouts
The Woven Star quilt block is an easy design featuring half square triangles and quarter square triangles and a few flying geese patches.
The quilt layout shown below on the left sets the blocks on point with sashing strips in the same colour as the background fabric. This makes the stars seem to float in the night sky, and an extra twinkle is added by the use of the "cornerstones" in the sashing strips.
The quilt layout featured on the right also uses an on point block setting, but in this case the blocks are set to form a "medallion" motif in the centre of the quilt.
