|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.
Hands of Friendship
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Hands of Friendship quilt block shown was created using a monochrome colour palette. However, this would be a wonderful selection to use in a scrappy quilt as well. Once again, your imagination is the only limiting factor.
This nine patch quilt block is comprised of only two different patches, in addition to the simple square -- the half square triangle and flying geese units.
Note how varied your quilt can look by the different setting you can choose, as illustrated in the sample quilt layouts shown.
