BLOCKS by SIZE 9" Quilt Blocks

Nine Patch Road

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Nine Patch Road quilt block is a wonderful introduction to the nine patch block, as it contains a nine patch inside another nine patch.

This quilt block is a great beginner block, containing three different units -- the square, half square triangle and the flying geese patches. Playing around with colour can give you a totally different look.
