|Nine Patch||Uneven Nine Patch|
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Spinning Blades quilt block is a great starter block. It is simple to construct and introduces you to the half square triangle patch (the most commonly used patch other than a square) and, my favourite patch, the flying geese unit.
This five patch block (so named because it is designed on a 5 x 5 grid) is constructed as an uneven nine patch for ease in the sewing.
