Nine Patch Squared Quilt

Path 3
Path 2


The newest pattern in our series of ”Simple Patchwork” by Craft South - and these patterns are exactly that.

The Story

The Nine Patch quilt block has been popular with quilters for hundreds of years and is considered one of the oldest known patchwork designs. Its simplicity is a great starting point for beginners, while the infinite checkerboard-like possibilities for fabric combinations and layouts make it a fun block for more experienced quilters as well. For our version, we are doubling down on the fun and creating nine patches within nine patches for a dynamic quilt that goes together quickly with the help of strip piecing. In fact our entire quilt is a Nine Patch! Use bold solids or your favorite fabric collection to create your own timeless Nine Patch Squared quilt!

BONUS- this pattern includes a tutorial to create a color change on each edge of your binding- so much simpler than you might think!

PS - we've created our very own  RAVEL 9 Patch Squared Quilt Kit to save you time!
