Daredevils Block #9: Florene's 9-Patch.
Block #9 is based on a great 20th-century pattern idea---the Improved Nine-Patch. It was quite popular, often published and pieced like a wedding ring with arcs and squeezed squares between them. Circle Upon Circle from the Kansas City Star in 1933 had no square block. The pattern's generally called the Improved or Glorified Nine Patch today.
I did find a variation in BlockBase (#2689) shown as a square block, which I exported, shrunk a little and added the quarter-circle corners. Now quite improved.
