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.

Rocky Garden

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Rocky Garden quilt block features flying geese patches and lots of half square triangles to fashion this lovely nine patch block.

The quilt layout shown below on the left features the blocks in a side by side setting. However, note that the blocks alternate with reversals of two of the fabrics in the placement in the blocks. This adds another element of design.

The quilt layout featured on the right sets blocks and half blocks on point, separated by sashing strips, for a totally different look.
