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


The simple design of the Pall Mall quilt block makes for ease in whipping up several blocks at a time.

The quilt layout shown below on the left makes several of the blocks as mirror images so that the pinwheel motifs face towards and away from each other. These blocks are separated with sashing strips for an additional chance for more colour in your quilt.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks on point with some additional blank blocks for a pop of colour -- (can you see hearts?).
