|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.

The Year's Favorite quilt block is a four patch that is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter. It contains only the two most commonly used patches -- the square and the half square triangle, which ultimately form pinwheels.
When I chose the fabrics for this block, I deviated from the "norm", in that I used the focus fabric as the background. Since my background fabric is dark, the lighter fabrics draw your eye into the pinwheels.
