I’ve been wanting to try out the disappearing nine patch ever since I saw Karen’s quilt a few years ago. When Amanda mentioned that she wanted to make a patchwork canning mat and that she wanted to do a disappearing nine patch, Katherine & I cried ‘quilt along’ right away.
I had a stack of fat quarters already picked out from my Colour Theory Class that I wanted to use. I’m realizing now how autumnal my colours are. That peachy colour just looks so good with the browns.
We’re making 25 blocks that will finish at 5″ each. I was able to start putting mine together on Sunday. The nine patches came together really quickly. Once your blocks are together, you slice them vertically and horizontally through the centre. Then you rotate the four pieces and sew them back together. There are a few different configurations you can come up with when you twist the blocks. Fun!
Canning season is almost done for this year, but I’ll surely have this done before next year.
