Your question: How do you increase the size of a quilt block?

Why are my quilt blocks too small?

With too big of a seam allowance, your blocks might turn out smaller than you expected. Whether you’ve got a quarter-inch presser foot, rely on sewing machine markings, or use Craftsy’s sticky note method, you’ll want to measure it with a ruler to make sure it’s actually a scant 1/4-inch and not slightly off in size.

What is the most popular quilt block size?

Probably the most common size of quilt block (and definitely the most preferred of the FaveQuilts audience), the 12-inch size is great because it’s so versatile, and you’ve got plenty of space to show off your clever use of HSTs or fussy cut fabrics.
