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.

Royal Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Royal Star quilt block might look vaguely familiar. It is quite similar to the Weathervane block, but with additional flying geese patches replacing the rectangles. Personally, I don't see a star as the name would indicate, but it is a pretty block. An added bonus is that now you have two more suggested layouts for whichever block you choose to make.

Half square triangles also make an appearance in this nine patch block. These two pieced patches mentioned are the most commonly used units (other than the square) in quiltmaking.
