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 two quilt layout samples shown below both are sewn on the diagonal, but with very different resultant quilts.

The quilt layout illustrated on the left uses many blank blocks in different colours selected from the blocks, to add a bit of pizzazz to the quilt as well as a perfect spot to showcase your quilting designs.

The quilt layout featured on the right fills the quilt with both whole and half blocks and separates them all with sashing strips. The "cornerstones" in the sashing add a tiny spark of additional colour and help to create a subtle secondary pattern where the blocks come together.
