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.

The Down Home quilt block is a nine patch design featuring lots of half square triangles and a few flying geese patches.

The colour placement is key in making this block stand out. I took the opportunity to use an "autumn" palette of colours -- lots of oranges and greys. These colours are not usually in my comfort zone, but I was delighted by the end result.
