|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.
Birds in the Air
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Birds in the Air quilt block is an old favourite. I like it because of the geometry -- being the "math nerd" that I am. And speaking of math -- take note of the directional nature of the block. With 90 degree roations in single or groupings of the blocks, you can design a variety of stunning quilts -- as evidenced on the following page.
This four patch quilt block is made entirely of half square triangles, using two different sizes of those patches. You will be a master of this unit in no time when you make all the patches necessary for your quilt.
