|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 Winds quilt block is a study in half square triangles. This block will test your sewing skills. Just note, that there is nothing difficult at all in the making of this block -- it just takes patience to construct all the patches. You will need to be very aware to sew an accurate quarter inch seam allowance due to the large number of cut pieces. Other than that, there is no difficulty here as the patches are most likely the first ones you learned to construct.
I chose to make this nine patch block with different coloured "flowers" but you could easily simplify this choice and make all of your flowers the same fabric. (I'm just a person who likes lots of colour.)
The two sample quilts illustrated show two very different quilts -- one with blocks set side by side and the other with blocks on point and additional blank blocks (to showcase your quilting skills). Enjoy!
