|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.
Road to Rome
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Road to Rome quilt block is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter as it is a simple nine patch featuring the first types of patches that you would learn as a new quilter. Those patches are known as half square triangles and flying geese.
You might choose this block to add to your growing collection of "road" quilt blocks. I have linked to some of those below.
The two sample quilts illustrated use standard quilt block settings -- one is a side by side layout with sashing strips to separate the blocks, while the second quilt features the blocks set on point with additional blank blocks.
