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 Vestibule quilt block is a perfect choice for a beginner quilter as, despite the image showing lots of triangle pieces, this block is sewn with the easy "sew and flip" method and uses no triangles -- they only show up in the end result.

This quilt block is technically an eight patch since it is designed on an 8 x 8 grid. However, it is sewn as an uneven nine patch due to the size and shapes of the patches.

I have chosen to make this block as a monochromatic "scrappy" version, using all different shades of teal for the main colouring. I decided to maintain a single light fabric which forms the star. This block would look fabulous as a totally scrappy version, making sure to make sure there is lots of contrast between the dark and light fabrics. What will you choose?
