Nine Patch Uneven Nine Patch
The Uneven Nine Patch style of quilt block is so named because not all of the nine individual patches are the same size as is the case in a regular nine patch quilt block. This style of quilt block is often used in 10" quilt block to make the math easier, but you will find this construction method in many other quilt blocks as well.

Martha Washington Star

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Martha Washington Star quilt block lends itself nicely to creating a scrappy quilt to use up all those leftover small pieces in your fabric stash.

The quilt layout shown on the left sets the quilt blocks side by side and as a result, produces a secondary star where one block meets the next. The quilt layout on the right sets the blocks on point and separates the blocks with sashing strips. Side and corner triangles with this type of block setting allows for additional colour to jazz up the end design.
