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.

Back and Forth

Sample Quilt Layouts


These two quilt layouts shown below, each use four of the Back and Forth blocks, rotating each of those four blocks by 90 degrees to make a larger block. These new groupings are then set either side by side or on point to create the desired quilt layout.

Directional quilt blocks offer all sorts of interesting design possibilities. If you look closely, you will notice that one of the quilts also uses sashing to separate the blocks. Additionally, changing up the border fabric selection can make quite a difference.
