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.

Lady of the Lake

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Lady of the Lake quilt block is designed using only two sizes of half square triangles. All that is required is good contrast between each of the pieces in those half square triangles.

Below are two example scrappy quilts. The quilt layout on the left uses blocks with an assortment of scraps as the dark fabric in each half square triangle. This quilt layout places the blocks on point and utilizes setting triangles in a constant colour for a place for the eye to rest.

The quilt layout on the right places the blocks side by side, but uses 90 degree rotations of some of the blocks for a secondary pattern to emerge. This quilt also features each block using two fabrics only - but different dark fabrics in each block, thereby resulting in a scrappy quilt with a different look.
