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.

Beacon Lights

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Beacon Lights quilt block is technically a four patch design (because it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid), but it is actually constructed easily as an uneven nine patch, due to the particular patches selected for the design.

This block would be a perfect teaching tool for those instructors leading beginner classes in quiltmaking. The block features several flying geese patches as well as the square in the square unit in two different sizes.

All in all this is a fun quilt block to make. Enjoy!
