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.

Fan Waves

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Fan Waves quilt block is two blocks in one. It is a nine patch as the centre of an uneven nine patch block. The block features half square triangles and flying geese units, all arranged to make a pinwheel within a star. All in all, this is a wonderful "learning" quilt block.

The two sample quilt layouts illustrated below both use an on point block setting. However, each quilt looks very different from the other. Adding the extra blank blocks and/or setting triangles gives the opportunity for more colour interest and a place to spotlight your quilting skills.
