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.

Lightning in the Hills

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Lightning in the Hills quilt block would be a wonderful choice as a "teaching block" for instructors in this art. It contains three different, common patches ~
~ half square triangles - the most commonly pieced patch
~ flying geese - my favourite patch
~ square in a square - an underused patch - (in my opinion)

This nine patch design features lots of motion -- just like a lightning strike in the hills.
