|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.

The Golden Gate quilt block is a wonderful choice as your first project if you are a beginner quilter. This block contains only simple shapes -- the square, rectangle -- and the most commonly used quilt patch -- the half square triangle.
Although I have chosen to use only three different fabrics, this nine patch quilt block would be great as a selection to use up many scraps you have collected, especially if you are creating a whole quilt of this one block.
