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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

The two quilt layouts shown below are both designed using a diagonal setting of the quilt blocks.

The quilt layout featured on the left separates all of the blocks with sashing strips in the same fabric as the background of each block, thus making the blocks appear to float. The tiny "cornerstones" in each sashing strip add an additional spark of colour to the quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses blank blocks in different colours for an entirely different design. These blocks give you a perfect spot to show off your quilting designs.
