Nine Patch Uneven Nine Patch
The Uneven Nine Patch style of quilt block is so named because not all of the nine individual patches are the same size as is the case in a regular nine patch quilt block. This style of quilt block is often used in 10" quilt block to make the math easier, but you will find this construction method in many other quilt blocks as well.

Sample Quilt Layouts

The two sample quilt layouts shown below are both designed using an on point setting of the blocks, but could not look more different.

The quilt layout featured on the left uses extra blank blocks as a method of introducing more of a colour splash to the design. These blank blocks give the quilter a spot to showcase a beautiful quilting design.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets full and half blocks on the diagonal and separates them with sashing strips. This sashing, with the cornerstones, gives an additional, yet subtle design element to the final quilt.
