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.

Indian Star

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Indian Star quilt block is a wonderful choice for a beginner quilter as there is only one pieced patch to learn -- the flying geese unit, shown on all four sides of the block.

The sample quilt layout on the left shows the use of 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks, resulting in a secondary pattern emerging. This is the fun of experimenting with blocks that have an obvious directional nature. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks on point and adds that extra pop of colour in the form of additional blank blocks.
