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.

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.
