Disappearing Nine Patch

I found this 'pattern' through a discussion on the Stashbusters yahoo list. The gal had the tutorial on her blog. Of course I didn't go back and look at the pictures before I started putting the quartered blocks back together......... why would I do something like that?? (My first grade teacher said I didn't like to follow directions). So I had to take them apart and lay them out the correct way.

This one is very scrappy. I'm sure it would work with some of the charm pack lines. I used 3.5 inch squares to make my ninepatches. What do you think?

I didnt know there was a correct way to put this together. I just played with the blocks until I was happy with it - yours looks great. Isnt it a fun block to do.

I like your scrappy look - wasn't that long ago that someone on Stashbuster shared a HUGE bag that was made form scrappy Dissapearing 9-patch blocks. It's large enough to hold a king size quilt even! Great for taking along projects in and looks very quilty! If you or anyone else wants the pattern, just email me. :) ~Bonnie in SE Texas

I think your top is great. You can put the blocks together in several different formats. Good job!

I love your disappearing 9patch. I'm doing scrappy too. I'm in the middle of making 2-3 of these puppies (2 pink and 1 green)! The trimming is tedious but otherwise I'm pleased with them.
