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 Alpine Cross quilt block is an easy block to sew and that makes it that much more fun to design your final quilt, as it goes together quickly.

The quilt layout featured below on the left continues with the darker fabric as a focus, which gives a unique vertical design when the blocks are placed on point.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks side by side producing a look of stars (at least it does to me) as a subtle, secondary design.
