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.

Circling Geese

Sample Quilt Layouts

The use of the flying geese patches in a directional layout in the Circling Geese quilt block leads to all sorts of interesting quilt possibilities. The quilt layout shown on the left sets the quilt blocks side by side while the quilt on the right places the blocks on point for an entirely different look plus additional chances for extra colour in the form of setting triangles.
