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.

Alaska Homestead

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Alaska Homestead quilt block is a simple five patch design and could be used as a first block if you are new to quiltmaking. It features only half square triangles and square patches.

I chose to use a colour scheme that represents Alaska -- the navy and yellow from the state flag and the periwinkle colour for the state flower -- the forget-me-not.

For additional ease in the making of this block, I have written the instructions to construct it as an uneven nine patch, as I prefer to work in"chunks" rather than sew row by row, but feel free to sew in your chosen method.
