Nine patch quilt blocks are numerous and likewise, the "sister" block type -- the Uneven Nine Patch. Both can be simple or challenging, depending on the number of pieces in each quilt patch.

Nine patch blocks are comprised of nine units, laid out in three rows of three patches. This is probably the most commonly used type of quilt block made.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Arrow Crown quilt block has no difficult patches in the block. However, do to the large number of patches required to make the block, I have assigned this quilt block to an intermediate level of difficulty.

For this sample, I decided to use a gradated range of colours, so you will see a selection from a pale yellow to a deep burgundy in these fabrics.

The sample quilts illustrated show the quilt blocks on point and also side-by-side with sashing. This can give you an idea of how many different looks you can achieve by simply using your imagination with how to set the blocks in your own quilt.
