Six-inch quilt block patterns can be used to create any type of quilt, but the scale of their patchwork is perfect for baby quilts, wall hangings, lap quilts, and other small projects

Six-inch Quilt Blocks Mixed With Other Block Sizes

  • Sew a group of four 6" x 6" blocks (two rows of two each) next to a 12" square block.
  • Sew a group of four 3" x 3" blocks (again two rows of two each) next to a 6" square block.
  • Mix and match any block size that fits to create a puzzle-like quilting project.

6" Quilt Block Patterns for Your Next Quilt

  • Double Hearts - Grab your scraps and sew watercolor-like hearts. The 6" version (there are four sizes) is a bit more challenging than the larger blocks.
  • Eccentric Star Quilt Block - Not truly a star and not truly a pinwheel -- this quilt block is a bit of a cross between the two.
