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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

Two sample quilt layouts are shown below featuring the Halley's Comet quilt block -- a simple five patch design.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses a standard block setting of side by side and separates the blocks with sashing strips and "cornerstones" for an extra pop of colour.

The quilt layout featured on the rights sets the blocks on point for an overall design with lots of interest. The different mitred borders on the quilt give an additional design element and splash of colour interest.
