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.

Four Crowns

Sample Quilt Layouts


The directional nature of the Four Crowns quilt block opens up a huge variety of design options for your quilt. By simple rotations of the quilt blocks, either in groupings of four blocks or individually, you can often see secondary patterns can emerge.

In the quilt layout shown on the left, the blocks are set on point and the rotations of some of the blocks create a secondary pattern. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks side by side with rotations of groups of the blocks for a totally different look.
