The Split 9-Patch Quilting Block

The Split 9-patch quilting block is a block that is split in half diagonally with value.  It is often compared to the log cabin quilt block, as you can arrange the block in similar ways.

 

split 9 patch grid linesThe Split 9-patch is an easy, frugal quilting block to make.  As you can see from the grids in the picture to the left, there  are only 6 squares, and 3 half square triangles in this block. 

This is a block that should be made scrappy, so you can see the different squares.  If you don't make it scrappy, it is just like a half square triangle.  That can easily be made another way.

 

I used simple measurements making this block.  Each grid finishes  at 2 inches.  The block is 6 1/2 inch raw.

 

Make your half square triangles and squares, and then sew them together as shown.  Follow good piecing and pressing  rules. 

 

It is difficult to get confused on this block, so it makes a good first quilt.

Pictured is one arrangement of the Split 9-patch.  Do you see the pinwheels and the quarter square triangles?

 

There are many ways to arrange these blocks.  Have some fun with them.
