    Hmmm... If you used layer cake 10" squares, then I guess it would make two 8 1/2" 9-patch blocks?

    I have always used the strip method to make 4-patch and 9-patch but this is a good way if you have squares to start out with.

    WOW! wish I knew about this before I cut out 3600'ish pieces for my daughter's quilt. All cut early summer, but not all pieced yet. LOL DEFINITELY will use in the future. Don't like strip piecing as much.

    Great idea! Strip piecing 9 patch blocks if you want several blocks to be the same, but this is a great method for all blocks to be different. Thanks for sharing method!
