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.

Cross and Crown

Free Quilt Block Pattern

There are many variations of the Cross and Crown quilt block and I chose to make the one that had more fabrics, and thus more colours to work with. My colour scheme sort of went with the name of the block -- brown for the cross that Jesus carried, gold with hints of red for the crown of thorns, and red for the obvious reason.

This quilt block is a wonderful choice for new quilters to learn of the unit that is often referred to as a three quarter square triangle patch. You will use both the quarter square triangle and half square triangle pieces to make this unit.

Although technically this block is a five patch design, it is sewn (for ease) as an uneven nine patch, since I prefer to work with "chunks" rather than row by row. However, you might choose to sew it in rows if you find that simpler for you.
