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.

Good Cheer

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Good Cheer quilt block contains only simple patches -- squares, rectangles and flying geese units. The small squares (the light fabric in the sample block) create a meandering path when you place the many blocks into the quilt.

The quilt layout shown below on the left features blocks set on point with "corner" triangles for each block. This allows for additional colour placement of your choice for these large triangles, to add some extra pizzazz to the quilt. The quilt layout on the right shows blocks set side by side and as a result, the tiny squares lead the eye to the stars in the centre of each block. All sorts of interesting possibilities can be achieved just with the arrangement that you choose for your own quilt layout.
