quilters have asked for templates to make 6-inch block on a 5 x 5 grid. The
result was Perfect Patchwork Template Set S.
Most of the 5-patch blocks you can make
in Volume 4 with Set M templates you can also make at 6 inches (finished) with
Set S templates. The instruction booklet that comes with Set S includes those
conversions and several new blocks, including some not found in the Farmer's
Wife book, which has helped popularize the6-inch block size.
Template Set S and Set M are perfect
companion sets! The smallest pieces in Set M are used as the biggest pieces in
the 6″ blocks, while the small pieces in Set S provide the opportunity
to make many more detailed 12-inch blocks. Some people might even call them 10
x 10 blocks. These template diagrams are shown in proportion to each other.
