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 Patch

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Cross Patch quilt block is a wonderful choice for a beginner quiltmaker due to its simplicity. However, these two sample quilt layouts shown below, reflect just how striking even the simplest of blocks can make as a whole quilt.

The quilt layout featured on the left sets full and half blocks on the diagonal. Sashing strips are added for an extra colour pop and to enhance the look of a "plaid" in the final quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right also sets the blocks on point, but includes several blank blocks for the additional design element and a perfect spot to showcase your quilting design.
