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.

Kitty Corner

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The quilt block called Kitty Corner is one of hundreds of nine patch blocks and this particular one would be a wonderful choice to get your quilting journey started, if you are a beginner quilter.

This quilt block introduces you to a common patch called square in a square for each of the four corners.

In the sample quilts illustrated, I made two different versions on the quilt block -- by reversing two of the fabrics and then laying them in the quilt as alternate blocks. This achieves a secondary pattern and so your resultant quilt can look far more difficult to onlookers than it really is. A win-win situation!
