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.

Sample Quilt Layouts


I enjoyed designing quilts for this block -- mostly because one often thinks that simple blocks can be boring.

The quilt layout featured below on the left uses an on point setting of the blocks with sashing strips for separation and blank blocks for extra pops of colour.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right also sets the blocks on point. However, if you look closely, you will see a secondary pattern emerging when the blocks touch each other. (Can you see what looks like a dark blue Ohio Star between the "circle" motifs?)
