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.

Cups and Saucers

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Cups and Saucers quilt block is a simple nine patch design, but is a lesson in three different patches -- the half square triangle, flying geese unit and the square in a square patch.

The two sample quilt layouts shown below feature the most commonly used quilt block settings to produce very different quilts. Depending on the look you are going for, or the extra punch of colour you might wish to add, these illustrations may help you decide if these quilt layouts are for you or will you come up with a design of your own?
