|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.
The Weathervane quilt block is quick and easy to construct and offers lots of opportunites to create a stunning quilt design.
The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the block on point and uses blank blocks for extra pops of colour. Sashing strips separate the blocks for an added design element.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right uses a standard side by side setting of the blocks. By choosing to use the centre area for blank blocks, this makes for a spot for an intricate quilting design that is then surrounded by the pieced blocks.
