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.

Glad Tidings

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Glad Tidings quilt block is a different choice for those quilting teachers out there. It is sometimes nice to deviate from the "usual" blocks used in a class of new quiltmakers.

This nine patch design features the square in a square patch as well as the ever popular flying geese unit. The colour placement of some of the fabrics reveals a subdued star in the centre of the design. (Perhaps that is where the block name Glad Tidings comes from -- as a note to the biblical reference? -- Just a thought.)
