|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 Springtime quilt block is the ideal choice to bring out those colours of the season. Different colours for the "flower" petals in in the block would make a lovely scrappy quilt. However, for these sample quilt illustrations, I chose to stick with the same colour scheme.
The quilt layout illustrated on the left sets full and half blocks out on point with an extra spark of colour in the blank blocks -- a perfect spot to showcase a lovely quilting design.
The quilt layout featured on the right uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks. Sashing strips separate them and offer up an additional spot for a pop of colour.
