You’ve never seen Nine Patch quilt blocks quite like this (+ giveaway!)

Nine-Patch-quilt-blockSweet and simple, the Nine Patch is one of the oldest and best-loved quilt blocks. In fact, just knowing its name is almost enough to know how to sew it! This simplicity makes the Nine Patch quilt block a chameleon of sorts, allowing for endless creativity and variation. A Nine Patch block might look classic as can be in one quilt and completely modern as part of a different design. Changing just one element, such as the scale or color placement, gives the block a total makeover.

Intrigued yet? Well, there’s no better place to see the versatility of Nine Patch quilt blocks than in the newest addition to our Block-Buster series: I Love Nine Patches. We gathered a dream team of designers to bring you 16 unique takes on this timeless block, and you’re sure to be inspired to start your own Nine Patch adventure!

Block-Buster Quilts: I Love Nine Patches

Let’s start with the kaleidoscopically colorful quilt To The Nines by Audrie Bidwell. The block is a straightforward Nine Patch, but the stupendous scrappiness and clever use of color makes this quilt both easy and fun to piece.

Sherri McConnell recently shared her lovely I Love Nine Patches quilt, Paisley Patch, on her blog A Quilting Life. She combined simple Nine Patch blocks with Snowball blocks in scrappy red, cream, and blue paisley prints, and then set them on point to create this cool composition.

Jackie White’s bold and bright quilt Jewel of the Nine is made from two alternating Nine Patch blocks. Can you spot them? Using half-square triangles for the corners of the alternate blocks creates a faceted jewel-like look.

For a completely different take, Kimberly Jolly played with the scale of her blocks to make her amazing quilt called Gradations. The gradual shift in size among the blocks makes for a truly stunning visual effect.

Corey Yoder tossed half-square triangles and four-patch units in the mix to make the beautiful quilt Bespoke. This combination of two modified Nine Patch blocks makes the design much easier to piece than it looks!

    —Mary on August 17, 2016

    Embrace its destiny!

    Karee SOWARDS on August 17, 2016
  • I do prefer the traditional look, but prefer scrappy and tiny!!! 3 inch blocks make me happy.

  • I really like nine patch blocks any way you use them. I just saw a friends quilt that used a nine patch block alternating with a solid color block. It was very cute. I have two favorites among the pictures in your new book. I like the one with the blocks running through the quilt like an Irish chain, and I like the one with the altered circle looking block.

    —Barbara on August 17, 2016
  • I like variety in my nine patch quilts. Winning the book could make that happen!

    Debra Buckley on August 17, 2016

    —Lesley on August 17, 2016

    I use it all the time to make blankets for Project Linus.

    Working together! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    —Pam L on August 17, 2016

  • I love the simplicity of the nine patch block. Love that it can shine on its own!

    —Carolyn Sands on August 17, 2016

    —Hildy on August 17, 2016
  • I love the classic 9 patch look but would not be opposed to getting ideas to stretch me out of my traditional comfort zone.

    Yvette Borden on August 17, 2016
  • I love the look of the classic nine patch but to be honest I have mixed up the nine patch just a bit on a few quilts

    —Jody Hogan on August 17, 2016

    —Kathryn Mackey on August 17, 2016

    I like to change it up. Simple but
    interesting!

    —Laura on August 17, 2016
  • 9 patches are so versatile! Easy to teach and visually exciting – simple and complicated at the same time!

    Gail G on August 17, 2016
  • I like the modified nine patch unless I want a more traditional look. The block is so versatile traditional can be modern and vice versa.

    —DebMac on August 17, 2016
  • One of my favorite quilts is a classic nine patch with an alternating block, so I guess I’m in favor of traditional nine patches. I love Kimberly Jolly’s quilt!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on August 17, 2016
  • I like to change it up.

    —Janna on August 17, 2016
  • I prefer the traditional setting, but frequently change it up.

    —Suzanne on August 17, 2016
  • You’ve certainly presented some interesting variations. Changing them up seems like the right thing to do now – and this book would certainly help!

    —Marilyn on August 17, 2016

    Danette Stankovich on August 17, 2016
  • Love the variation in this book.

    —Nancy on August 17, 2016
  • I love the basic 9 patch block when I make them small in size. But I do change them up when I start with a larger square, such as a disappearing 9 patch or by adding triangles to the outer sides. Yes this little block is pretty basic but an easy building block for many quilts! Thanks for the variety of ideas in this book!

    —Marie Eddins on August 17, 2016
  • Loving the variations!

    —Teri O on August 17, 2016
  • I love Mine Patch blocks changed up and tweaked…until I see a striking color palette in the simple traditional Nine Patch and then I feel disloyal to my Grandmother and her quilting group from the 1950’s.

    —Nancy Burk on August 17, 2016
  • I love all nine patches!

    —Brynne on August 17, 2016
  • I adore nine patches in any form, but when I change them up, I’m in heaven!

    —Susan Griffith on August 17, 2016
  • I like 9 patches any way. It’s fun to switch it up!

    —Doreen Kuster on August 17, 2016
  • I love nine patches especially when they’ve had some addons and tweaks like these. My group has been making nine patches for charity quilts from my old collection of 5″ charm squares. We did some disappearing 9 patches but are looking for more variety. Would love this book.

    —Annette Kohls on August 17, 2016

    Dorothy on August 17, 2016
  • Wow. I have only ever made a nine patch that I cut into thirds then sewed it back together because I wanted to do something that changed up the look. NOW! Wow! I will be purchasing this book in a paperback regardless if I win the ebook. Change It Up.

  • I think changing it up makes it more fun.

    —Marguerite Namdar on August 17, 2016
  • I have always loved nine patch blocks! At this point, I’m not sure which I like…traditional or modern. I think it depends on the fabric I’d like to use for the project.

    —Janice on August 17, 2016

  • I love using nine patch blocks in anyway I can think of.

    —Judith Martinez on August 17, 2016
  • Being a traditional quilter recently gone "modern", nine patches have meant memories of my early quilts. Seeing Bespoke and Jewel of the Nine piqued my interest greatly,but Gradations made me think of all those little bits I have been scrap managing. This new publications just might answe what to do with both my stash and those self-made pre-cuts! Gotta have it.

    —Delores Angus on August 17, 2016
  • I am preparing a quilt talk to an assisted living group on Monday and I was starting with just that–the 9-Patch block and showing how many variations on this one block you can make. This book would be perfect for my talk/demonstration. i love to take easy squares and turn them into something that looks much more complicated -but really aren’t. I would love this book!

    Carolyn White on August 17, 2016
  • I like the traditional nine patch block, however, I do like to experiment with them from time to time.

    —Darlene on August 17, 2016
  • I love the variations in block size and configuration.

    —Janet G. on August 17, 2016
  • I love 9-patches of all types! It’s fun to mix the scale, swap out sub-sections for half-squares or hourglass, interlock them, make them into stars or other shapes.

    —Sally on August 17, 2016
  • I made my very first quilt with 9-patch blocks in 1991 and I still have it!! I love the 9-patch and Snowball combo! So many possibilities!

    —Terri Cochran on August 17, 2016
  • I enjoy experimenting with layout and color.

    —gerri nathanson-cook on August 17, 2016
  • I like a nice traditional nine patch but pair it with a different block to get a unique look.

    —Carol Gearey on August 17, 2016
  • I enjoy experimenting with color and layout in a nine patch.

    —gerri nathanson-cook on August 17, 2016
  • I love the true nine patch. Just changing colors or placement of colors gives you such a versatile block

    —Catherine Cook on August 17, 2016
  • I love nine patch blocks, but like to change them up to add variety.

    —Jan Horn on August 17, 2016
  • I like its purest form 🙂

    —Angelia Ulrich on August 17, 2016
  • But I didn’t get to finish & add that I like to try new things w/them! A book would make that easy. Thanks again.

    —Angelia Ulrich on August 17, 2016
  • I love both! Great ideas in this book to use HST’s and nine-patch blocks together…good for stash-busting!

    —Janice on August 17, 2016
  • Right now, I am loving the look of the traditional 9 patch in modern colors and prints!

    —Deidra on August 17, 2016
  • I lean towards the original nine patch but I cut pieces left from other projects into 3 inch squares and throw them in a bag. Then I randomly grab four pieces and join them with a neutral color (common in all the blocks). After awhile I have enough scrappy blocks to make lap quilts to donate. Even though it has a scrappy look, the common neutral color ties it all together. Thanks for the chance to win this book.

    —Lynn Darcy on August 17, 2016
  • I love the variety of placements of the patches. I teach beginners and frankly we have used the Disappearing Nine Patch enough. These would be a welcome addition to the class.
    Thanks for sharing.

    —Kathy Jones on August 17, 2016
  • I think I love them all!!! What’s not to love about the simplicity f the basic 9-patch? And who could resist making them over and over again into more creative and original patterns, changing up layouts and fabric? I love 9-patches!!!!

    Heather on August 17, 2016
  • Pure and simple is my favorite with great variety in hues and prints and settings that vary by colorway.

    —Marty on August 17, 2016
  • I love pure 9 patch. but I am beginning to experiment with variations.

    —katybee on August 17, 2016
  • It depends on the fabrics I am using, some call for traditonal blocks, while some can carry off the variety of more modern blocks. Love the ideas!

    —Susan Kirk on August 17, 2016
  • I love to mix it up, the more scrappy the better!

    —Carol Deiber on August 17, 2016
  • After seeing these quilts I totally like the variations.

    —Alana Erickson on August 17, 2016
  • Love the variations!! Would love this book to make quilts for my grandson!!

    —Amy Downey on August 17, 2016
  • The more choices the better. I have been stumped about a quilt design for a 9 and 11 year old boys. The nine patch is perfect. They like different colors and this way I can use two different 9 patch and the different colors will work great. Now, if only I could win the book to help me with the different 9 patch ideas. Thanks.

    —Holly on August 17, 2016
  • I prefer a not-so-square look. The Paisley Patch and Jewel of the Nine are especially pretty.

    —Lynne on August 17, 2016
  • I love nine patch blocks. I am inspired to do a different kind of nine patch as suggested by your book.

    Joyce on August 17, 2016
  • Love the changes in this block! It can be so humble and with a few changes it is sophisticated! Lots of fun here

    —Ellie on August 17, 2016
  • I love nine patch in all forms and look for different combinations.

    —JudyBL on August 17, 2016
  • I’ve used the original nine patch in several quilts and I’m starting to branch out into different forms of the block. It’s amazing what one can do with a nine patch. Really pretty quilts in this book.

    —Virginia in AK on August 17, 2016
  • Love the traditional 9 patch but the newer looks are quite fun and modernistic.

    —Karen Keeler on August 17, 2016
  • I absolutely love the change up of the tradition 9-patch. Although the traditional in the "scrappy" form is fun, too!!

    —Tammy Bourque on August 17, 2016
  • Isn’t it just fun to do what you feel like that day? I can’t say I limit myself to any one way, so it’s hard to answer the question.

    —Judys on August 17, 2016
  • I love nine patches too.

    —Margaret Dalmer on August 17, 2016
  • I like to change up the nine-patch blocks to make interesting new looks.

    —Janet Wiener on August 17, 2016
  • Nine patches are great on their own or as a compliment to a well designed quilt. But I love the enhancement of of these little fellows shown in the quilt with bordered nine patches, what a good way to use Nine patches in this way.

    —Liz on August 17, 2016
  • I love the classic look of the traditional but would never diss the variations!

    —Samantha newbern on August 17, 2016
  • I like both. The traditional 9-patch is a comfortable go-to when I want to play with fabric and colors without thinking too much about construction. That said, with any traditional block I also like to take a tangent and see where the design goes. Either way I get a fun "canvas" for FMQ. The book looks like a great addition to my quilt library, with plenty of inspirations and secondary and tertiary designs.

    —Jane on August 17, 2016
  • OH,I love these change it up patterns. They took the ‘same ol’ and brought in new!

    —Louise on August 17, 2016
  • Am a purist at heart and prefer traditional, but find the variations quite interesting.

    —Bea on August 17, 2016
  • I used a 9 patch on my first quilt and love the idea of changing it up to add more sparkle to a quilt.–and to use of the many scraps that I have.

    Calista Schafer on August 17, 2016
  • Who knew that nine patch quilts could be so interesting! I love what I see.

    —Marlene Sapa on August 17, 2016
  • Both ways are nice, depends on the look I want at the time.

    —Sheila on August 17, 2016
  • I like how the design of the Nine Patch can change and become a fresh new design

    —Valerie Thompson on August 17, 2016
  • I like a simple nine patch and great designer fabric to make a quilt that wows!

    —Regina on August 17, 2016
  • I love nine patches! I love them in their pure form as they work so well with other blocks, but I love the variations as well. Nine patches are one of the most verities blocks. Simple enough for a beginner, but glorious for the more experienced.

    —Judi Reiss on August 17, 2016
  • I like all sizes of 9 patch and combining differ t sizes in same quilt

    —De baker on August 17, 2016

    —Ellen on August 17, 2016
  • I’m a purest but some of these patterns may change my ways!

    —Samantha on August 17, 2016
  • Both, of course. But, I would choose to change it up for more interesting sewing.

    —Linda S on August 17, 2016
  • My first quilt was a nine patch and it certainly didn’t look like these! Sure do like the change up’s, thanks!

    —Wendy on August 17, 2016
  • I like to mix it up. I’ve done a couple Disappearing 9 Patch quilts and love them. It’s a great way to use up my scraps.

    —Joanne Wilson on August 17, 2016
  • I love working on Nine Patch blocks…..most of the time they are all uniform, but would love seeing more creative ways of designs with different sizes.

    —karen ferguson on August 17, 2016
  • 9 patches are a staple in scrap quilts and I love scrappy quilts. Would love this book.

    —Deena Drevs on August 17, 2016
  • I love traditional nine patches, but I am intrigued by the variations you presented. I’m open to giving them a try.

    —Sandy May on August 17, 2016

    —Corné on August 17, 2016

  • I like the new variations–there are so many possibilities.

    —Linda Edwards on August 17, 2016

    —Evelyn Ware on August 17, 2016
  • I love the look of the changed up nine patches!

    —Debra Reber on August 17, 2016

    —K Yee on August 17, 2016
  • I love to change it up! But nothing like a quilt, traditional 9 patch for a quick baby quilt, or something for charity!

    —Jeannine on August 17, 2016
  • I love patchwork and especially 9 patch. There is something very therapeutic in sewing those little squares into a block.

    —Marsha Bradford on August 17, 2016
  • Well, I thought I liked traditional 9 patches, but the ones you showed were really nice. I think I’d like to give some of those a shot. (Lord knows I have plenty of scraps to use up…. maybe I could make a few!)

  • I love any kind of nine patches.

    —Trudy Keller on August 17, 2016
  • I like to change it up a bit. I think the quilt is much more interesting that way. I made my first nine patch block as a pillow in Home Ec. class. I didn’t even know it was called a 9 patch block back then. I remember I made sure all my blocks were solid colors. But the teacher didn’t tell us to only use 100% cotton, so some of the fabric stretched more than others. Live and learn.

    —Alice on August 17, 2016
  • I LOVE all nine patches!

    pat on August 17, 2016
  • I like to change them up – keeps folks guessing when a quilt looks more complicated than it is!

    —Cathy on August 17, 2016
  • I like traditional nine patches, but would like to see the variations in the book.

    —Diane on August 17, 2016
  • While I am a traditional quilter and always will be I do appreciate seeing how others tweak and change things up! So striking with alternating blocks of all sorts. Lots of blocks have a 3 x 3 grid and that lends themselves well to the more simple basic 9 patch. THX for the preview of the book.

    Linda Jimerson on August 17, 2016
  • Although the nine patch variations are stunning, there’s just something so comforting and warm feeling with the simplicity of the traditional nine patch.

    —Renee on August 17, 2016

    —Paula on August 18, 2016
  • I’ve been wanting to make a nine patch with all my little 1″ pieces I’ve been saving in a box. I love the idea of the gradations one though that’s cool and would give me a chance to make some nine patches with other sizes which I’ve been saving each in their own boxes as well.

  • The more variety the better! It keeps things fresh.

    —June on August 18, 2016
  • I love 9-patch blocks and love to change it up. Sometimes I will slice up a 9-patch and rearrange it within itself, other times will slice it up, put the slices in a bag and randomly draw out halves to put together. Makes for a lovely, scrappy looking quilt or if set colors are used, makes for interesting backgrounds for applique, embroidery work or bead embellishments.

    —Terri Drake on August 18, 2016
  • I have been in love with 9-patch blocks since making my very 1st quilt! They are easy to chain piece, and look WONDERFUL paired with almost any other block!

    Nancy on August 18, 2016
  • These nine patch variations are so exciting that I would love to try some. I have been organizing my scraps and have several stacks of squares of various sizes ready and waiting to be put into one of these projects. My use of nine patches so far has been in making table runners with the blocks that are cut two ways and reassembled.

    —Maryann Rozzell on August 18, 2016
  • I love working with nine patches, especially variations. "Sew" many ways and sizes that they can be mixed or matched!

    —Patsy Weber on August 18, 2016
  • I can honestly say nine-patch variations are my favorite. So easy to use up my scraps. Even after a long day you can sit down, make one block and at least feel like you’ve had SOME "me-time" at the sewing machine. 🙂 They’re also simple and easy take along blocks. I love Corey’s variations!

    —Ruth Anglin on August 18, 2016
  • I prefer the simplicity of the pure nine patch, but love what can happen with just simple color placement.

  • I absolutely love the nine patch block in its traditional setting. I’m kinda’ a traditional quilter for the most part. But once in a while, I like to see a new, intriguing way to use a very traditional block, too! This looks like a great book!

    —Laurie Erickson on August 18, 2016
  • I love the traditional 9 patch block but I also like to change it by cutting into it & playing with shapes & colour, adding charms then recutting. It’s great to experiment.

    —Jane Olley on August 18, 2016
  • I like it as a basic block and to change it up – especially when using it as an alternate block to make a secondary design when assembled.

    —Jenifer on August 18, 2016

    —Pamela Reim on August 18, 2016

    Especially like BESPOKE, very eye catching.

    —Hedda Boon on August 18, 2016

    —DeeH on August 18, 2016
  • Always loved a 9 patch regardless if it was pure or mixed up. They are the best in so many ways.

    diane on August 18, 2016
  • I have dozens and dozens of 9 patches from doing 9-patch swaps in the 90s. No two are alike (except for the leftovers which I made in excess of the ones I mailed. I think a "simple" nine patch is really my favorite quilt — and the foundation grid for so many more that one could never make them all.

    —Brenda on August 18, 2016
  • I tend to like the very traditional patterns, so guess I would have to vote for straight 9-patch.

    —Karen on August 18, 2016
