Nine Patch Block

This easy quilt block is made of nine small fabric squares arranged in a checkerboard pattern. There are two kinds of nine-patch blocks you can make from two fabrics.

You can also make a scrappy nine-patch block like the one below, where every square in the checkerboard is a different fabric. The cutting and sewing are the same, but the look is quite different.

The versatile nine-patch is one of the basic quilt blocks every quilter can make good use of. While nine patches may look fussy, they actually go together very fast with strip piecing. The NewQuilter.com tutorial shows you how to make strip pieced nine-patches.
