|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 Fanny's Favorite quilt block is a simple nine patch making good use of single half square triangle pieces to create a different unit.
The two sample quilt layouts shown below use the standard block settings -- side by side as in the quilt on the left and an on point setting of the blocks. Both quilts feature additional colour in the form of sashing strips or blank blocks for showcasing your quilting skills as well.
