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


Both of these sample quilt layouts shown below use an on point, or diagonal setting of the blocks.

The quilt layout featured on the left adds lots of blank blocks in the background colour to make the stars appear to float in the night sky.

The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses a similar approach of setting blank blocks as well. The big difference is that many of these extra blocks feature strong colour choices drawn from the pieced block to add an extra splash of colour to the resultant quilt.
