|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.
The quilt layout shown below on the left uses a standard side by side setting of Lilac Lane, separating the blocks with sashing strips for an added effect. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks on point and uses extra blank blocks to include additional colour into the quilt.
Side note - These quilts would be stunning using a variety of scraps, rather than a single colour family. Just be sure to include lots of dark, medium and light values of all those fabrics.
