I know you all have seen the disappearing nine patch technique for making up a quick quilt. But have you ever seen a double disappearing nine patch?
It was new to me, so I just had to try it on some leftover solid neutral fabrics from cutting a kit last week. I was intrigued. It's starts with making 9 patches with 5" charm sized squares and then cutting your nine patch in quarters. But then, do a second round of sewing the 9 patches together (7" squares). I had enough fabric for 6 blocks. Each of these super-sized 9 patch blocks will be cut into quarters and arranged.
Now, these 24 blocks make a quilt that is 36" by 56" quilt. I think it's got quite a modern look. After I sew these blocks together and machine quilt it, I think it will look nice with a plain dark binding. A great little modern quilt for a modern baby, don't you think.
Want to give this double disappearing nine patch a try, here's a great pictorial tute.
And... More Quilts!
