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


The two quilt layouts shown below both set the blocks on point, but with very different results.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left separates the blocks with sashing strips and "cornerstones" while additionally using blank blocks for specific colour focus, as well as a spot to showcase your quilting design.

The quilt layout featured on the right adds large corner triangles to each block, thereby enlarging the block, but more importantly, giving the quilt extra splashes of colour with the careful placement of these corner triangles. By utilizing the dark background, the blocks seem to "float", for additional interest.
