|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.

I had fun with this Double Links quilt block. It is not a block for the average beginner, only because it contains so many pieces. But, if you look closely at the block, you will see that it contains mainly half square triangles, with a few three quarter square triangle patches added. These three quarter square triangles are so named as each square contains three triangles, of two different sizes. The smaller sized triangles in this patch are cut as quarter square triangles, using two of the four cut pieces per patch.
