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.

Sample Quilt Layouts

The Swing in the Centre quilt block was new to me and I loved creating two very different quilt layouts for you to see.

The quilt layout illustrated below on the left sets both whole and half blocks on point with additional splashes of colour in the form of blank blocks to enlarge the quilt and also as a spot to feature your lovely quilting designs.

The quilt layout shown on the right uses a standard side by side block setting to produce an overall geometric design for your personal heirloom.
