Monday Morning Quilting Quicky – Mixing Up the 9-Patch

July 13, 2015

Welcome back to our Quilting Quickies! We’ll have a new video and project every other Monday throughout the summer, so be sure to catch them all!

Today, Marcia will bring back an old favorite – the Disappearing 9-Patch. Using a Downton Abbey charm pack and a few clever cuts, see how easy it is to give a traditional 9-Patch block an innovative and visually interesting makeover. 

To make this 9-Patch project, you’ll need:

A Charm Pack of your choice
Rotary cutter and mat
7″ Nifty Notions Ruler

When you swing into the shop to pick up your supplies, make sure you tell us you’ll be making a Disappearing 9-Patch from our Quilting Quicky! See you soon!

Here we are on the final block. Our time together has flown past. Ideally, slightly darker fabric for the beige choice would have provided a more floral looking block. However, in this color choice the navy takes the front stage in the design choice.

We are getting so close to finishing our blocks!  I love how the pattern designer used a pinwheel block as the center of the first three blocks, and now a nine patch for the last three blocks.  It is a clever way to change things around.  I find that the nine patches go together quickly and I am eager to see these blocks completed.
