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.

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
