|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 Windmill quilt block is a simple four patch design featuring half square triangles to form a pinwheel blade to represent the "windmill" in the name of the block. This easy block is an ideal choice for beginner quilters.
The quilt layout featured below on the left sets the blocks on point and separates them with sashing strips. The colourful, blank blocks offer an extra splash of colour in this quilt.
The quilt layout illustrated on the right sets the blocks side by side in a standard design and also uses sashing strips for extra colour design elements.
