BLOCKS by SIZE 9" Quilt Blocks

Love and Kisses

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Love and Kisses quilt block is traditional nine patch design, featuring only simple shapes.

Squares, rectangles and half square triangles are the only patches used in this block -- which is a perfect learning experience if you are new to quiltmaking.

You will note that there is a subtle directional aspect to the block which allows for all sorts of interesting design opportunities. A simple 90 degree rotation of some of the blocks will create a whole new look for your final quilt.
