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.

The Idaho quilt block might be considered a "study in stars" since there are five stars that appear. This might seem like a challenging block to construct, but once broken down into smaller "chunks" it is really quite easy.

The eight patch quilt block is sewn as an uneven nine patch, once you have constructed all the smaller parts. These sections are comprised of two of my favourite patches -- the flying geese and the underused, (at least in my opinion) unit -- the square in a square.

Enjoy the choosing of your colours to make this lovely block stand out from the rest.
