I was browsing the web recently and found a tutorial on line for the “Disappearing Nine Patch”! I just had to try it…and guess what..?? It works and it is so easy! It makes you feel like a million bucks!
For this project I used one Hello Betty Charm Pack.
The first thing you do is lay them all out and organize them into nine patches. Traditionally, the nine patch has five darks and four lights. I just matched up squares I thought would look good together, sewed them together and I think it turned out really nice.
Next you take your rotary cutter and cut your nine patch in half, then in half again….and you will have this….
Now you can turn your squares…and there you have it…the disappearing nine patch! Be creative…you can do this any way you want to. There are several different ways to lay this out. I will be trying different patterns and will post them when they are ready! So here’s the layout we finally decided on for this quilt….I am adding borders and will show you a picture of that when I am done, and before I quilt it!!
Can I just say that I LOVE this quilt! It looks like a ton of work, but it isn’t!!
