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 Rock

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Rolling Rock quilt block gives the quilter a little break from blocks that contain primarily half square triangle patches. To be clear, half square triangles are present in this block but are used to make one of my favourite patches - flying geese units.

You also get to practice your skills on the square in the square patches in each corner of this nine patch block.

The sample quilts illustrated are both created using on point settings, but don't they look very different? Your own imagination might come up with a striking quilt all your own. Let's begin!
