Quarter-Of-Nine Block Quilts
Starting With Calico Puzzle Blocks
There are a lot of blocks that have been designed on a Nine Patch grid. Calico Puzzle is one of them.
What if you take those 4 quarters and sew them back together so that they are anything but a Calico Puzzle block?
You can make a lot of different blocks this way. I call them Quarter-Of-Nine blocks.
Designing new blocks this way is fun and easy. Even more fun is making quilts from the new blocks.
I tried a few designs using Calico Puzzle Quarter-Of-Nine blocks. But there are still a lot more out there waiting for you to discover them.
Of course you don't have to start with a Calico Puzzle block . There are a gazillion other blocks based on a Nine Patch grid that you could try.
