Nine Patch Uneven Nine Patch
The Uneven Nine Patch style of quilt block is so named because not all of the nine individual patches are the same size as is the case in a regular nine patch quilt block. This style of quilt block is often used in 10" quilt block to make the math easier, but you will find this construction method in many other quilt blocks as well.

Girl's Favorite - Variation

Sample Quilt Layouts


This Girl's Favorite - Variation block utilizes a sixth fabric to add extra interest to the eye and, as you may have guessed, it is derived from Girl's Favorite. This uneven nine patch block uses the "sew and flip" method to construct the centre square in a square patch, so you can think of this block as a learning experience.

The quilt layout shown below on the left uses a standard side by side block setting, with each block separated by sashing strips to add some additional colour. The same idea (sashing strips), can be seen with regard to the quilt layout on the right, but the blocks are set on point instead. Extra pops of colour are also introduced with the blank blocks placed here and there. As well as giving more opportunities for colour possibilities, this also allows for the size of the resultant quilt to be increased.
