|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.
The Peony Nine Patch quilt block is a nice "learning experience" when you are making all the different patches in quiltmaking. And -- I was pleasantly surprised when I started trying out the different quilt layouts you can achieve with this pretty quilt block.
I varied the sashing colours in the two different quilts and one is using a side by side quilt layout, while the other uses an on point layout. Both yield striking quilts -- that seem (to me anyway) to give the impression of "plaid". What do you think?
