|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 Sarah's Favorite quilt block is an easy block to construct. This four patch design is the perfect choice for a "scrappy" quilt.
The quilt layout illustrated below on the left sets the blocks on point with the side setting triangles in different fabrics to present a sort of "colour blocking" look to the quilt.
The quilt layout shown on the right also uses an on point setting of the blocks and half blocks. Sashing strips separate the blocks and add an extra splash of colour to the design. The borders in different colours offer an additional design element.
