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.

Rosebud

Sample Quilt Layouts


The Rosebud quilt block in a quilt lends itself nicely to using up lots of your scraps. By making blocks in a variety of "rose" colours, a striking flower quilt will result.

The quilt layout shown below on the left uses a standard setting of the quilt blocks in a side by side placement. The quilt layout illustrated on the right is more intricate, by setting the blocks on point and separating those blocks with sashing strips. Additional pizzazz is added to this design by using colourful blank blocks and setting triangles around the edges of the quilt. There is no end to the possibilities for this lovely flower block.
