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.

Minnesota Cross

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Minnesota Cross quilt block is an easy block featuring only basic patches -- squares, rectangles and half square triangles. This quilt block is technically a five patch (as it is designed on a 5 x 5 grid), but it is sewn as an uneven nine patch.

The colours in this block were chosen as they are representative of those of Minnesota State University.

The two sample quilts are both designed on point with very different outcomes. I chose to reverse two of the colours in several of the blocks for the quilt shown on the right to see a new effect.
