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.

Frolic

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Frolic quilt block is made of simple shapes -- squares and half square triangles -- and so, the blocks are quick to sew together. Then the fun begins as you decide on which quilt layout to use for your quilt. Two ideas are shown below, but there are oodles of possibilities.

The quilt layout shown on the left uses a common side by side quilt setting of the blocks. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks on point, and mixes up extra corner triangles for each block, which results in more colour in your quilt. What will your heirloom quillt look like?
