|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.
Dolly Madison Star - Variation
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Dolly Madison Star - Variation quilt block is based on the Ohio Star with an additional, small nine patch block for the centre.
This is a simple block to construct as long as precision in taken with the sewing, particularly with the small nine patch centre.
This quilt block can introduce beginner quilters to the quarter square triangle patch, which is so prevalent in many quilts.
The sample quilts shown illustrate the straight set and on-point layouts. The on-point layout also features sashing to separate the quilt blocks.
