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.

Mexican Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

Mexican Star is one of the many favourite 10" quilt block patterns that can be constructed in a couple of ways. I have chosen to use half square triangles and quarter square triangles to use familiar quilt patches and also as a teaching experience. I have also included instructions for a larger block as well.

You can make many variations in your personal quilt by adding sashing, as shown in the illustrations, or perhaps see what secondary patterns you can create by placing blocks side by side. Imagination is the only requirement.
