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.

Indian Plume

Sample Quilt Layouts

The directional nature of the Indian Plume quilt block has a lot to do with the variety of quilt layouts that you can design from this block. Introduce extra colour into your quilt by setting the blocks on point as shown on the quilt design on the left. The extra blank blocks and setting triangles give a totally look to your different quilt. Or, as illustrated in the quilt layout on the right, seconday patterns emerge as you use groupings of four blocks, with 90 degree rotations.

Which quilt layout will you choose or will you design one of your own?
