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 Winds

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Four Winds quilt block has a lot going on. This nine patch block is created using only squares and half square triangle patches, but the interest lies in all the different colours you can utilize to make this design.

The sample quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks and (at least to me) the pinwheels jump out to the eye. The quilt layout on the right uses an on point block setting with additional blank blocks to showcase your quilting designs.
