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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

The sample quilt layouts shown below for the Minnesota Cross quilt block feature the bright colours of the 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.

If a bold quilt is the effect you are looking for, look no further than this Minnesota Cross quilt block to design your heirloom.
