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.

Flying Diamond

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Flying Diamond quilt block is actually two blocks in one -- a nine patch "checkerboard" for the centre of the block and then this completed patch is surrounded by flying geese units and half square triangles.

Both of the sample quilt layouts shown below use an on point setting of the blocks. Each quilt shines on its own with additional blank blocks for extra pops of colour and/or sashing strips to separate the blocks. There is no end to the designs you can create using this simple quilt block.
