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

Two very different quilt layouts are illustrated below using the Pinwheel Star quilt block.

The quilt layout featured on the left uses four blocks together to create a larger block. This new block is them framed with corner triangles to make a larger block once again. Colour placement of these corner triangles created the design element in the centre of the quilt.

The quilt layout on the right sets single blocks on point and separates them with sashing strips for an extra chance to add more colour to the block. The blank blocks and side setting triangles offer places to highlight your quilting designs.
