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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

The two sample quilt layouts featured below both use an on point setting of the quilt blocks. That is where the similarities end.

The quilt layout shown on the left uses additional blank blocks to separate the pieced blocks, which add an extra punch of colour to the quilt as well as giving a perfect spot to showcase your quilting designs.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses some blank block for more colour opportunites as well as separating the blocks with sashing strips to give an additional design element to the quilt.
