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.

Checkerboard Star

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.

As illustrated by the sample quilt layouts, an entirely different look can be achieved by setting the blocks on point or a straight set with the blocks side by side.

This quilt block shown, was made in a monochromatic style, but would be lovely as a scrap quilt too or by choosing two different colour families.
