Nine Patch Uneven Nine Patch
The Uneven Nine Patch style of quilt block is so named because not all of the nine individual patches are the same size as is the case in a regular nine patch quilt block. This style of quilt block is often used in 10" quilt block to make the math easier, but you will find this construction method in many other quilt blocks as well.


Sample Quilt Layouts

The Propeller quilt block forms pinwheel designs when the blocks are set side by side, as evidenced in the quilt layout on the left illustrated below.

These pinwheel designs are even more evident in the quilt layout on the right, when setting the blocks on point and using the dark background fabric as the setting triangles along the edges of the quilt. This technique makes those features pop. The central motif of blank blocks in an alternate colour adds an extra design element to the quilt.
