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.

Free Quilt Block Pattern

The Wedding Ring quilt block is a five patch block, because it is created on a 5 x 5 grid. It is made only with squares and half square triangles so it is a easy block to assemble.

Speaking of assembly, many quilters choose to sew this block together as five separate rows. I prefer to assemble the block as an uneven nine patch as I find it easier to work with larger grouping of patches rather than rows. However, neither is correct -- it is simply a preference.

The sample quilt illustrated give you two different looks, simply by choosing to set the blocks side by side or on point. The resultant quilt focuses on a different aspect than the other setting choice.
