Notice how trading solid dark squares for solid light squares in the block lets you set two Nine Patch blocks next without alternating where the pieced elements go in the block. Leaving the small squares the same color also lends a uniformity to the quilt. Play with value and color placement in your quilt for different effects.

Quilt Assembly

Set the blocks together in rows of five, alternating dark and light blocks.

You can also play with how many blocks to put in the quilt in different arrangements. If you prefer a symmetrical look, pay attention to how the blocks fall. In the quilt below, we’ve added one more row at the bottom, which leaves the quilt hanging, so to speak, with no dark blocks in the corners like there is in the first row of the quilt.

Once the rows are complete, sew the rows together to make the quilt top.

Layer the quilt top, batting and backing. Quilt as desired and bind using preferred method.
