Some may know me and some may not. I used to post my quilt block patterns that I designed on a sampler thread and then I did a second sampler after that.

Most of them use 3- 5 colors and if you want to do a controlled scrappy you can mix up the color ways by using several reds or several diff blues etc.

I generally design using a 6 x 6 grid that means 6 rows of 6 blocks per row.
You do have to have a template to make them. I send out a free template if you need one. No postage needed
You can use my designs to make a 12 1/2" quilt block by using a 2 1/2" template.
or you can use a 1 1/2" template and make it a 6 1/2" quilt block

My quilt blocks are made using my shortcut blocks. but my shortcut methods are easy to do.

You can check out my stuff here if you are interested.

I do also have some 3 x 3 as in a shoofly or 9 patch type block

I would be happy to post my current BOM here if anyone is interested. I used to post them on QB but felt like noone was interested so I quit. I would do them here but I need to know if anyone is following along.

Okay here are a few of my favorite quilt blocks I designed. They look a lot more difficult to do but once you know the easy steps to make the shortcuts it isn't hard at all.

Sorry this top one is bigger than I realized.
In the layout you can see the individual blocks.
the first one is made with HSTs. Check out my HST method

It is possible to make the last block as a 6 inch version? I did buy a small ruler 1 1/2 inches by 6 inches. would that work?

If you cut two sides at a time it might work. but I think you'd have better accuracy with my template. I have your address if you want a template.

to answer your question if you use a 1 1/2" template and make sure your seam allowances are 1/4" you should have a 6 1/2" quilt block
