|Nine Patch||Uneven Nine Patch|
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Magnolia quilt block is a seven patch that I have modified slightly to remove many (unnecessary) seams. This makes the sewing easier and creates less bulk -- a winning combination.
Even though this block is a seven patch, I find it much easier to construct it as an uneven nine patch, rather than sewing it together in seven separate rows. I replaced many of the half square triangle patches with flying geese units so that there is no centre seam in those patches. The remaining patches are simple squares or rectangles.
