One step up from the four-patch is nine-patch. This week’s block therefore is Double Nine-Patch.
As ever, courtesy of Electric Quilt, here’s a few ideas for quilts with this block. First a straightforward 4 x 4 straight set.
Then a 4 x 4 straight set with plain alternate blocks
Then set on point (with a border too!)
and finally look what happens when the black and light are switched –
And of course you can make the other block – twin to this colouring – with 4 squares of black and 5 of red. Alternating these on point with their twin and alternate plain squares works well.
