BLOCKS by SIZE 9" Quilt Blocks

There is no question that 12" quilt blocks are the most commonly used. But at times, you want to make a block that is a little smaller and uses easy math. Enter the 9 inch block -- not too big and not too small, but just fits the bill.

Sample Quilt Layouts


I chose to use colours reminiscent of sipping a glass of red wine while enjoying a sunset in California's Napa Valley, for the two quilts illustrated below.

The quilt layout shown on the left sets the blocks side by side for an overall geometric look to this quilt.

The quilt layout featured on the right is a little more adventurous. It uses an on point block setting along with big splashes of colour in the form of blank blocks to showcase your quilting designs. The sashing strips separate the blocks and add an extra design element to the resultant quilt.
