Patterns for 9" Quilt Blocks

Nine-inch quilt blocks are nearly always nine-patch designs. That means the layout begins with a grid of nine squares -- three across and three down. The individual grids are usually subdivided to create more grids.

Nine-Patch quilt blocks can be created in any size, but we usually take a look at the gridwork and assign a size for each grid that works best for rotary cutting tasks.

Many of the quilt block patterns linked below include instructions for multiple sizes.

Quilt Blocks with Straight Grain Patches

All of the quilt blocks in this group have rectangular or square patchwork that's cut along the fabric's sturdy straight grains. That means less stretch and improved accuracy.

Quilt Blocks with Triangles and Other Bias Edge Patches

Although the quilt blocks in this group are all made with triangles, I've used quick piecing techniques to help you avoid handling the fabric's stretchy bias edge.

The quilt blocks above all finish at 9" square and represent just a few of the hundreds of quilt patterns you'll find on About.com Quilting.
