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.

King David's Crown - a Variation

Sample Quilt Layouts


The King David's Crown quilt block is a five patch design featuring half square triangles and quarter square triangle patches. I took a few liberties with the colour placement of the patches -- a slight variation of what is commonly used -- hence the name I gave to this quilt block.

I loved how the colours popped in the two sample quilt layouts shown below. Additional blank blocks or setting triangles offer opportunities to give the quilt a little more pizzazz (in my opinion). Both quilt layouts use an on point setting of the blocks for two very different quilts as a result.
