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


Both of the sample quilt layouts illustrated below use on point settings of the quilt blocks.

The quilt layout featured on the left uses both full and half blocks as well as lots of blank blocks alternating between them. This allows for those extra splashes of colour and is further enhanced by using sashing strips to separate the blocks.

The quilt layout shown on the right adds large corner triangles to each individual block. This allows the quiltmaker to introduce a variety of colours for these large triangles to produce a sort of "colour blocking" effect due to their carefully planned placement.
