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.

The Eight Hands Round quilt block -- (also known as Eight Hands Around) is really two blocks in one. The centre of the design is a simple block called Sawtooth Star that is often used in this manner.

The colour arrangement shown here in this version of the block makes the points of the outer star in different fabrics. However, you might choose to use the same fabric for these points. You would just need to alter your cutting of the patches accordingly. This block will offer you great practice is sewing half square triangles and flying geese patches.
