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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Best Friends quilt block is a seven patch block with lots of pieces. But, the good news is that none of the patches are difficult to make. In fact, only squares, rectangles and half square triangles -- the most commonly used patches -- are required in this block. For simpler construction (at least in my opinion), I choose to construct it as an uneven nine patch.

This block might look familiar to you, and you would be right. Below are links to other blocks that might be considered to be in the same family as Best Friends

The sample quilts illustrated are both constructed with an on point setting, but with just a few changes, they look very different. Your imagination is your only limitation.
