Quilters love a classic and there are few blocks more classic than a Disappearing Nine Patch! In this incredibly simple Vintage Jenny tutorial, Jenny Doan demonstrates how to stitch up this easy block using Charm Packs. First you’ll use your 5″ squares of precut quilting fabric to create a giant nine patch (which is just as simple as sewing nine squares together) and after that, you’ll use your ruler and rotary cutter to quarter your middle square. Flip those squares around and just like that, you’ve created a Disappearing Nine Patch!
Needing some more inspiration to create this beautiful block? While the Vintage Jenny tutorial fabrics are no longer in production (just like a classic quilt they’re a product of their time) check out our suggestions below for five current lines of fabric that make this quilt come together with ease!
This is a beautiful blue, cream, and linen white collection that will appeal to the traditional and modern quilter! Willow features classic florals and delicate foliage but also includes soft and subtle geometric prints, like chevron.
Have you heard? Hamilton is covered in ice. Literally! The streets are slick as a hockey rink, and the windows are obscured by a thick layer of wavy ice. I can’t get into my car because the doors are sealed shut, but even if I could, I’m sure I’d just slide my way into a ditch!
No one wishes for freezing rain, but when it comes, we hunker down and try to stay toasty under a mountain of sewing projects. This week Jenny is stitching up a new disappearing block. It’s a simple 9-patch with a couple of snowballed corners thrown in for kicks.

We had a wonderful time putting together this issue, selecting the quilts, and reminiscing about warm weather fun. (You may have been surprised to learn that Missouri folk like us love the ocean just about as much as we love quilting)!
