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.

Autumn Puzzle

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Autumn Puzzle is a simple four patch quilt block featuring only the most basic shapes in quiltmaking -- squares, rectangles and half square triangles. The added surprise is that these shapes work together to form pinwheels.

The two sample quilts illustrated also use only basic settings for your blocks -- a side by side layout which makes the pinwheels form sort of a secondary pattern, while the on point setting gives you ample room to do some fancy quilting stitches in the blank blocks.
