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.

Rolling Pin

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Rolling Pin quilt block is an easy nine patch and introduces the quilter to the flying geese patch and the square in a square unit.

This block is a good choice for learning how to use half square triangles in a patch differently than making a single square using the two triangles, as is the most common practice.

The sample quilts illustrated give you suggestions for using just the block, set side-by-side or adding additional plain blocks to feature your quilting skills.
