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

Two sample quilt layouts for the Navajo quilt block are shown below.

The quilt layout featured on the left sets the blocks on point and separates them with sashing strips and additional blank blocks for extra splashes of colour.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses a standard side by side block setting. This is has the added bonus of creating a subtle secondary pattern of overall elongated geometric shapes for a totally different look.
