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.

Union Square

Sample Quilt Layouts

The addition of extra patches and colour opportunites is what makes the Union Square quilt block differ from the Ohio Star block upon which it is based.

The quilt layout shown on the left uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks making a subtle secondary pattern of additional stars appear where the blocks join. The quilt layout on the right features the blocks set on point with extra blank blocks for a little extra colour in the quilt design.
