Nine patch quilts are deceptively simple to make. While not a difficult pattern to master, nine-patch quilts don’t have to be totally basic. In fact, the basic layout – which is simply nine equal-sized blocks sewn together – is just the starting point. In different types of patterns, the blocks are often divided in various ways to create complex layouts. Many quilt blocks work well when sewn side by side, especially if they have the same structure.

Each of these blocks can be included in a sample quilt or made repeatedly for a quilt of its own. So many options! Let’s play with Nine Patch Quilt Blocks.
