|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.
Cedars of Lebanon - a Variation
Free Quilt Block Pattern
This Cedars of Lebanon - Variation quilt block is is a slight adaptation of the original design of the block. I have replaced the centre patch, which was originally a square, with a square in a square patch -- just to add a little extra something to the block. (Please feel free to substitute a single square in the centre if you choose.)
This nine patch block also "stretches your wings" as a quiltmaker if you are a beginner, by the construction of the patches in each of the four corners. (I'm sure there is a name for this arrangement of cut pieces, but it escapes me right now.) All in all, this quilt block is an interesting addition to my ever-growing collection of biblical quilt blocks.
