|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 Memory quilt block could prove to be challenging for a beginner quilter, due to the number of pieces required to make the block. This quilt block contains 49 pieces. These pieces are sewn in groups of patches and then those groups are sewn together as a nine patch.
I have chosen to use bright oranges and yellows because this block looks to me to be a star, so I just went with that. It would be spectacular in shades of blue or as a totally scrappy quilt block. You just need to pay attention to the colour values in order to achieve the same effect.
