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.

Swing in the Center

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Swing in the Centre quilt block is six patch (as it is designed on a 6 x 6 grid) but it is constructed as an uneven nine patch for the simple reason that the individual patches dictate as much.

This pretty block will introduce you to three patches that make frequent appearances in quilts -- the half square triangle, the flying geese unit and the square in a square patch. All in all, this block is a wonderful choice to use as a teaching tool -- either for a class of new quilters or to hone your own personal skills
