|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.
Below are two sample quilt layouts featuring the Petronella block -- a simple four patch design.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left, sets the blocks side by side and separates them with sashing strips and contrasting "cornerstones". This would be a perfect choice for a first quilt for someone new to the art of quiltmaking.
The quilt layout featured on the right uses an on point block setting with additional blank blocks for that extra pop of colour as well as a spot to showcase your quilting design.
