|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.

Zenith was fun to create and I did take a few liberties with its construction. Those rectangles were supposed to be two squares sewn together, but my theory is why make a seam when it is unnecessary? I also changed up some of the colour placements, but then, I'm allowed, since it is my block!
Half square triangles are plentiful and this block also includes my favourite patch -- the flying geese unit. Oops, I almost forgot to mention the centre patch is made using the square in the square patch. I also included this block in the pinwheels category because, depending on the block layout, they may emerge as a secondary pattern, which is always fun.
There is nothing difficult in constructing this quilt block and you can make some really interesting quilts by adding sashing and/or setting the blocks on point. The discovery is awaiting you.
