Nine Patch Uneven Nine Patch
The Uneven Nine Patch style of quilt block is so named because not all of the nine individual patches are the same size as is the case in a regular nine patch quilt block. This style of quilt block is often used in 10" quilt block to make the math easier, but you will find this construction method in many other quilt blocks as well.

Solomon's Star

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Solomon's Star quilt block is based on an old favourite of quilters -- the Sawtooth Star. By replacing the blank centre of the Sawtooth Star block with a pieced four patch, which creates a pinwheel, you get a totally different spin on the block. (Did you see what I did there?) :-) You will be using both half square triangles and quarter square triangles to create this striking block design.

The centre of the block is made as its own unit and then is added into the whole block. The full block is then constructed as an uneven nine patch.

To go with the star theme of the block, I have chosen colours that remind me of a bright star in the night sky.
