|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 Road to Rome quilt block is an perfect choice to get you started in quiltmaking as it is an easy block to construct.
The quilt layout shown below on the left takes advantage of the dark fabric in the block to add extra blank blocks in the on point setting of the quilt. This gives the effect of the blocks "floating" and the bonus is that you can showcase your quilting designs in those spots.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks side by side and separates those with sashing strips. This is a common (and favourite) style of quilters everywhere.
