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.

Mother's Own

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Mother's Own quilt block is a five patch, but is sewn (for ease) as an uneven nine patch block. Although you see triangles in the block, you construct this design using the "flip and sew" method for triangles, which uses only squares and/or rectangles, rather than cut triangle pieces. Easy, peasy.

Both of the sample quilt layouts shown below use an on point setting of the blocks, with sashing strips to separate them and add an extra design element. The quilt layout on the left also uses strategically placed blank blocks and setting triangles for added pops of colour.
