|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 Susannah quilt block is technically a four patch design, but I took a few liberties with the block -- to make it easier to sew.
This block is now constructed as an uneven nine patch because I did away with the centre as it was designed -- as four individual half square triangle patches sewn together. By using the square in a square patch instead, there are fewer seams and therefore, less bulk. Also, I made it even easier by sewing this centre patch using the "sew and flip" method of corner triangles.
This quilt block is easy and effective and makes for some striking quilts as a result.
