|Nine Patch||Uneven Nine Patch|
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.)
