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.

Cupid's Arrow Point

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Cupid's Arrow Point quilt block is one to choose for a variety of reasons:
~ You want to make a larger block
~ You want to practice some of the patches you don't use all the time -- like quarter square triangles, flying geese and the square in a square patch.
~ You just want to try something a little different
~ and finally ... you want to make a special block for your Valentine

This quilt block is constructed first as individual patches, then as "chunks" and finally as an uneven nine patch. So all in all it is a great learning tool.

The sample quilts illustrated use the standard side by side setting with sashing and an on point setting, giving similar but still very different results.
