|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.
Thunder and Lightning
Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Thunder and Lightning quilt block is a nine patch design which will give you lots of practice sewing half square triangles to create this wonderful pattern.
But, that's not all. You will also need to sew a few flying geese units and a square in a square patch for the centre of the block. All in all, this is a perfect choice for a new quilter to construct a block that is not seen as frequently as others, but still gives lots of opportunity to make commonly used patches in a different design.
