Nine Patch Nine Patch - Uneven
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.

Roll of the Dice

Free Quilt Block Pattern

This Roll of the Dice is a nice choice for a beginner quilter. It is easy to construct and introduces two common quilt patches -- the half square triangle and the square in a square patch.

Although this block is technically a four patch (so named as it is designed on a 4 x 4 grid), with the changes I made to the pattern, it is now constructed as an uneven nine patch.

The two sample quilts illustrated show different settings for the block -- an on point setting as well as a side by side layout with sashing. The sashing uses two different fabrics in order to give a "stair step" effect. (It is subtle but gives just a little more interest to the block.)
