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.

Crowning Glory

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Even though it is commonly thought that a woman's hair is her crowning glory, I also see a "crown" in this quilt block. So, I decided to use the "royal" colours of purple and gold to go along with the title of this Crowning Glory.

This nine patch design features half square triangle cut patches as well as quarter square triangles to form the crown. This quilt block gives you lots of practice using these two common shapes in the design.
