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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

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.

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.

Two very different quilts evolve when you choose to set the blocks side by side or on point as shown in the sample quilts illustrated.
