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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Rolling Rock has lots of interest going for it. A star appears in the centre as you construct this easy nine patch design.

The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks and many half blocks on point and separates them with sashing strips. This produces a busy, yet pleasing quilt design.

The quilt layout shown on the right also uses the blocks set on point. However, the addition of blank blocks, strategically placed, gives the appearance of a "medallion" in the centre, and surrounds that motif with the perfect spot to show off some intricate quilting patterns.
