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.

Desert Highway

Sample Quilt Layouts


As you might notice, I have chosen colours of the desert and its sun for this Desert Highway quilt block. However, you might have a very different colour scheme in mind for your quilt block and resultant quilt. The five patch block makes good use of the simplest of quilt patches -- squares and half square triangles.

The two sample quilt layouts illustrated are created using the most commonly used settings. The quilt layout on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks while the right quilt layout lays the blocks on point and features sashing strips and extra blank blocks to give an additional pop of colour. What will you choose as the perfect quilt layout for your blocks?
