Nine Patch Nine Patch - Uneven
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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Desert highway is a simple block using the most common quilt patches -- the square and the half square triangle. I have chosen to construct this block as an uneven nine patch, simply because I am not a fan of sewing individual rows together. However, do not hesitate to construct your block in rows if that is your preference.

The sample quilts illustrated give you some idea for how to make your own personal heirloom. Layouts shown are set on point and blocks side by side. However, don't be limited to these examples. There is no end to the way you can create your quilt.
