|BLOCKS by SIZE||9" Quilt Blocks|
There is no question that 12" quilt blocks are the most commonly used. But at times, you want to make a block that is a little smaller and uses easy math. Enter the 9 inch block -- not too big and not too small, but just fits the bill.

The Amish Star uses simple patches to make this easy quilt block. It features squares, rectangles, half square triangles and flying geese units -- all patches you learn as you begin your quiltmaking journey.
This is a six patch block (as it is designed on a 6 x 6 grid) that is constructed in "chunks" as a nine patch. The centre of the block is actually another pieced block called the Sawtooth Star.
