BLOCKS by SIZE 9" Quilt Blocks

There is no question that 12" quilt blocks are the most commonly used. But at times, you want to make a block that is a little smaller and uses easy math. Enter the 9 inch block -- not too big and not too small, but just fits the bill.

Crossroads America

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This Crossroads America quilt block is a nine patch design featuring half square triangles and a patch that is underused (in my opinion) and I am fast become its fan -- the square in a square unit.

I believe the "crossroads" are the patches forming an "X" with different routes going in the opposite directions. (If you look closely, you will notice that the corner units differ slightly from each other, thereby creating the variation.)
