|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 two quilt layouts shown below feature the Key Lime Pie quilt block in different on point settings of the blocks.
The quilt layout on the left enlarges each individual block with large corner triangles. The careful colour placement of these triangle pieces creates a secondary design in the quilt.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses a standard diagonal block setting. The extra blank blocks offer a spot to feature a lovely quilting design and they also add an additional design element to the quilt.
