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

Sample Quilt Layouts

You can make many variations in your personal quilt design using the Mexican Star quilt block as shown below in the two sample quilt layouts.

Simply by adding sashing strips to separate these five patch blocks and placing them on point, additional opportunites arise for extra colour spashes in the form of setting triangles, as illustrated in the quilt layout on the right. Or perhaps you might see what secondary patterns you can create by placing blocks side by side as in the quilt layout on the left. Imagination is the only requirement.
