Disappearing 9 Patch

As I mentioned back in April (that seems like so long ago now) I found a bunch of 6" 9 patch blocks and turned them into disappearing 9 patch blocks.



Since then I've participated in another 9 patch swap, this time using 9" blocks. Rather than have two smaller quilts I've combined the two swaps to make a lap quilt.

Initially I had the smaller blocks in the centre then changed my mind (of course I didn't change it until I'd stitched everything together).

I'm thinking about backing it with polar fleece - no wadding - and then quilting it. Decisions, decisions, lol.

I have never done a dissapearing nine patch before, but it is on my list now!

Lovely work Sue. I just saw your photo of your landscape on the Yahoo site (Around the World in 20 quilts) and am impressed with how much it looks like your photo. Love the water in the center.

that is stunning. Makes the D9P come higher up my list of want to do.

I absolutely LOVE what you've done with the different size squares! I'm going to highlight this on my own blog! I hope you don't mind!

LOVE it!

Cheers,

Love how you've combined the different sizes of blocks. After all, why have 2 UFOs when you can have 1 finished quilt!!
Great idea :)

Is this the pattern where you make a 9 patch then chop it up. I did that once and had great fun, you would never believe the resulting pattern was just a 9 patch would you.
I am having a lovely time looking at all your wonderful things you know.
