You Can Make
Quarter-Of-Nine Block Quilts
Starting With Shoo Fly Blocks
A Shoo Fly block is designed on a Nine Patch grid.
You can reassemble those quarters any way you choose to make new blocks.
I call blocks made this way Quarter-Of-Nine blocks.
Below are some quilt designs made using Shoo Fly blocks transformed into Quarter-Of-Nine blocks.
You need 4 quarters the same to make a star block.
So it takes 2 Shoo Fly Blocks to make a star block and a mirror-image star block.
By making Quarter-Of-nine blocks from simple blocks like Shoo Fly you can design quilts that look more complicated than they really are.
