|BLOCKS by SIZE||5" Quilt Blocks|
For those quilters wanting a little more of a challenge, five inch quilt blocks might be the answer -- smaller blocks usually means more blocks to make. Another reason for using five inch blocks is to create a secondary pattern. By using 4 blocks and rotating each of them, you get a different larger quilt block. These larger blocks can then be laid out in variety of ways to make some very interesting original designs.
Mrs. Keller's Nine Patch
Free Quilt Block Pattern
Mrs. Keller's Nine Patch is an interesting name for this quilt block because, depending on how you look at it -- (and your colour choices for fabric) -- it contains a nine patch block in the centre (although you will really have to search for it), or the construction (as I have shown you here) is to make this quilt block as an "uneven" nine patch block.
This quilt block could be considered as a five patch as well, because it is made on a 5 x 5 grid. All in all, this is an easy block to construct and you have great fun with your colour choices.
