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.

Cactus Plant

Sample Quilt Layouts

The sample quilt layouts shown below using the Cactus Plant quilt block are featured using only shades of green as a colour palette. I was going with the colour of the actual cactus plants. However, many real life cactus plants feature lots of interesting flowers in a variety of colours, so you might want to make your quilts a more colourful variation, rather than use the monochromatic tone of these quilts. Ah, the beauty of quilting -- you make all the choices to fashion it as your own.
