The half square triangle unit is probably the most commonly used patch in a quilt block -- well it is second only to the square. It is made simply with two triangles, filling up half the square each -- hence the name. Take a quick look through this website, or in any quilting magazine, and you will start to notice that this half square triangle, regardless of its size, is present in more quilts than not.

Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Garden of Eden quilt block is another block that falls into the category of uneven nine patch, so called because the three rows making up the nine patches are not all the same width. However, the good news is that the sewing method is the same for any nine patch with equal sided units.
This quilt block is a perfect block to introduce the quilter to the square in a square patch, resulting in a square set on point. This is a common patch used in many quilt blocks.
