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 sample quilt layout shown on the left features the Tonganoxie block set side by side with sashing strips between the blocks.

The quilt layout on the right shows the blocks set on point with lots of blank blocks to give the appearance that the central motif is "floating" within the corners of the quilt.
