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.

Cat and Mouse

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Cat and Mouse quilt block is a four patch using half square triangle cut pieces individually rather than as two pieces to make a square. Secondly, this block makes use of the square in the square patch, but again, not in the traditional manner -- but it does require the cutting of the patch as such.

This all sounds very complicated, but the making of this block is relatively simple, so have no fear.

The illustrated sample quilts show how versatile this quilt block is in the resultant quilt that you choose to make.
