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.

Garden Square

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Garden Square quilt block might look familiar to you. It is similar to one of the most popular patterns on this website -- but goes a little bit further. Can you spot the difference between Garden Square and Folded Corners?

Once again, I went with a monochrome colour scheme for the simple reason that I wanted to keep the optical illusion of the corners folding down (hence the name of the other block), but this new nine patch block has the added feature of a square in a square patch for its centre. And ... as an added bonus, I created the block and two quilts in a different colour scheme as well -- to go more with the "theme" of this block name.
