You might notice that the design doesn't look anything like a typical nine-patch quilt block, in fact, it's more of a four-patch design. But technically, the block is known as an unequal nine-patch.
Each quilt block requires minimal fabric, making the pattern a perfect choice when you'd like to make a scrap quilt from your unused stash of fabric.
To Make an Unequal Nine-Patch Like the ExampleChoose two teal fabrics, one lighter than the other, for the four patch unit that's sewn at the block's center. Choose a medium to dark brown fabric for corner squares, and a light greenish (or neutral) fabric for the frame. Fabric cutting instructions are on page 2.
