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.

Blackford's Beauty

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Blackford's Beauty quilt blocks lend themselves nicely to leading the eye around the quilt with "paths" as is shown in the quilt layout on the left, which sets the blocks side by side. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks on point in order to create additional interest and focus by using the blank blocks in strategic places for an entirely different look.
