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.

Buttercup

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Buttercup quilt block is one of many different flower blocks. This is a great block for beginners because it contains only squares and half square triangles. For those of you who want to make it more challenging, then I would suggest you make this quilt block as a 6 inch version.

The sample quilt layouts illustrated demonstrate that by simply rotating several of the quilt blocks you can produce a totally different look. One of the quilts shown sets the blocks side-by-side while the other lays the quilt blocks out on point.
