|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.
Two sample quilt layouts featuring the Magic Triangles quilt block are shown below.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets the blocks on point with lots of extra colour used in the blank blocks and side triangles for some added pizzazz.
The quilt layout shown on the right also uses a diagonal setting of the blocks and creates lots of "negative space" in the blank blocks by using the same fabric as the background colour in the block. This creates a whole new design "shape" in the quilt and gives a wonderful spot for your quilting designs to make an appearance.
