|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.
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.
By changing up the background fabrics, you can achieve very different quilts, as illustrated in the sample quilts shown. Sashing between the quilt blocks offers another chance to separate the blocks or add an additional fabric.
