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.

Indiana Puzzle

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Indiana Puzzle is a simple nine patch quilt block featuring patches that make frequent appearances in quiltmaking -- half square triangles. Little "checkerbaords" made from small squares finish off the look.

Whether you choose to set the quilt blocks side by side as in the quilt layout on the left, with or without sashing strips to separate the blocks, or use an on point quilt layout as shown on the right, your resultant quilt will be striking and a welcome addition to any home.
