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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Checkerboard Star quilt block is a simple nine patch block comprised of simple patches -- the flying geese unit and squares.

Sometimes you just want to use a monochrome colour scheme for your design and this quilt block is a perfect choice. But, by using fabric values to include dark, medium and lights, this makes a wonderful "scrappy" quilt block too.
