Customer Quilt – Uneven Nine Patch Quilt

This is a customer quilt that I recently finished. I am always on the lookout for quilt designs that can be converted quickly into interesting quilts. It seems these days that the time I have available to work on my own quilts is less and less. I don’t have the time to devote to those heirloom quilts right now. There are many bloggers out there making donation quilts for one of the many needy organizations and so I thought you might enjoy looking at another idea.

This Uneven Nine Patch or Puss in the Corner block is very simple construction–5 1/2″ square center, surrounded by 2″ squares and 2″ strips for a finished size of 9 1/2″. (Please note that measurements are finished sizes, not cut sizes.)

This quilter set the blocks together with 2″ sashing strips and cornerstones and finished the quilt off with a 2″ inner border and a 5″ outer border.

The fabrics in this quilt definitely add interest to an other wise simple quilt block, but the formula works.
