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.

King's Crown

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The King's Crown quilt block gives you chances to practice your skills on a variety of patches. The centre of this block is made with a square in a square patch. This could be the perfect spot to utilize a "fussy cut" square showing a specific motif, or as is shown here -- a simple plain patch where you can feature an interesting quilting design.

The other patches used are frequently seen in a wide variety of quilt blocks -- the half square triangle, the quarter square triangle, and my favourite patch -- the flying geese unit.

The two sample quilts illustrated both feature lots of free space to showcase your quilting designs. The sky is the limit!
