|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.
The Royal Star quilt block is a simple block to construct and makes for some stunning quilts.
The quilt layout shown below on the left sets whole and half blocks on point with some carefully placed blank blocks to create a striking design.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right also uses an on point block setting, but goes further with the blank blocks to add extra pops of eyecatching colour to enhance this quilt. The mitred border treatment is more added pizzazz.
