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.

The Use It All quilt block is technically a four patch design because it is built on a 4 x 4 grid. However, this block is constructed as an uneven nine patch as the design dictates that is the best way to sew this quilt block.

I had never heard of this quilt block before, but I really liked working with it since it allows for six different fabrics to use in the design. You will use three different patches to construct this block -- a square in a square patch for the centre, as well as using both half square triangle and quarter square triangle cut pieces to form the patch that many quilters call a three quarter square triangle. This is a fun block to create, but care must be taken to observe the colour placement of the fabrics.
