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.

David and Goliath

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The David and Goliath quilt block is an addition to my ever-growing collection of biblical blocks. This is a seven patch (since it is designed on a 7 x 7 grid), but I choose to construct it using my favourite method -- as an uneven nine patch. This method works in what I call "chunks" rather than sewing row-by-row. However, if the latter is your preference, then you choose which method is right for you.

The block features lots of half square triangles and flying geese patches, to keep you in practice.

The two sample quilts illustrated use standard layouts. One has blocks set side by side while the other uses an on point setting with sashing strips separating the blocks and a few blank blocks added in order to feature your quilting.
