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.

Using colours such as I have used in the sample quilt layout illustrations with the Around the Block quilt block, shows you that many quilts can be designed for men's tastes. Choose those dark fabrics and more muted tones and your man will be delighted in the final product.
