|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.

The Indiana Puzzle is a perfect block to start with if you are new to making quilts. This quilt block uses simple squares and the most common pieced quilt patch called the half square triangle. This particular patch will be seen in many, many quilts that you will see in your quilting journey.
The Indiana Puzzle block also will introduce you to the most common quilt block layout -- the nine patch, so named because the final construction of the block uses nine patches to make up the quilt block.
The sample quilts illustrated show just how very different your resultant quilt can be, just by choosing a different layout than another quilter.
