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.

Five Patch Frame

Sample Quilt Layouts


As its name would suggest, this Five Patch Frame quilt block is designed to surround the centre patch, using the five patches as a frame. In the block image shown here, the same background fabric is used for the block centre. However, this is the perfect spot to use a "fussy cut" square of fabric or perhaps a photo image. This block would be a wonderful choice, using a photo for the centre, for an anniversary quilt or for any family heirloom.

The sample quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side layout, with the same block throughout. But, the quilt layout on the right uses the blocks set on point, but additionally, reverses the fabric placements in each alternate block -- giving a totally different look.
