The Amish Squares quilt block is created with just that single patch -- the square. The fun begins as you design your quilt and decide on which layout is best to show off your quilt blocks. Both quilts shown below feature sashing strips between the blocks. The differences lie in whether you place the blocks side by side or on point with additional shots of colour in the extra blank blocks and setting triangles
|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.
