|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 Four Crowns is a simple four patch with one of my favourite "features" -- that being, it is designed in a directional format. I like these types of blocks because you can create numerous arrangements by using 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks. I generally group four blocks together in a "chunk". You can create all sorts of interesting outcomes because secondary designs start to emerge.
The block is created entirely of half square triangles, in two different sizes.
