|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 Flying Diamond quilt block is kind of a "double nine patch" as the centre is made of a small nine patch block and then it is extended into a larger nine patch block by adding half square triangles in the four corners and flying geese patches as well, in the outer rows.
This simple quilt block would be a good choice for teachers to introduce all of these patches to beginner quilters.
