Nine Patch Uneven Nine Patch
The Uneven Nine Patch style of quilt block is so named because not all of the nine individual patches are the same size as is the case in a regular nine patch quilt block. This style of quilt block is often used in 10" quilt block to make the math easier, but you will find this construction method in many other quilt blocks as well.

Abe Lincoln's Platform

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Abe Lincoln's Platform quilt block is an easy one to construct and the quilts designed with this block are simple to sew as well. If you choose to set your quilt blocks in the fashion of either of the sample quilts shown below, I believe your quilt will show a sort of "plaid" effect as well -- at least that is what I interpret from the images.
