Here's a little tip from the Northwest Quilters, Inc. Newsletter:
How to make a 9patch block from an 8 inch
square.
Use a carpenter's "trick." Draw an 8 inch square on a piece
of paper. Then lay a ruler diagonally from side to side placing the beginning
edge (or zero mark) on one of the parallel side lines and the nine inch mark
on the opposite parallel side line. Mark a dot at three inches and a dot at
six inches. Move the ruler up or down and mark the same way. Use the ruler to
draw a line thru these dots from top to bottom of the square. Turn the drawn
square and do the same marking the other way to make the nine equal squares
needed for a 9patch. You can use this method to mark an odd number of equal
divisions of anything.
