|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.

I took liberties with this Casino Royale quilt block by adding in a third colour. I think it has far more possibilities when you start to lay out the nine patch blocks in your quilt. I thought it needed both red and black to go along with the "casino" colour scheme of a roulette table.
Another change is subtle -- I made the centre patch as a square in a square, rather than the original group of four separate half square triangle units. I always think less seams equates to a more precise block and of course, less bulk.
The sample quilts illustrated use 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks to produce a secondary pattern, which is always a nice surprise.
