Double disappearing 9 patch

Good morning! Mary Ellen here.

I thought I was in New Orleans this morning. It’s so darn humid out-even with the actual temp at 67º I ended up all “dewy” from the humidity. Thank goodness for central air.

If you’re a fan of the disappearing 9 patch method, you’re going to like this one-the double disappearing 9 patch. It results in a very graphic, interesting block and it’s quite easy. Give this a look! click here

While you’re there have a look at some of her tutorials for free motion quilting. I like her all over patterns with no marking needed!

Just came back to add this bit. While exploring the blog above, I found this tidbit. Just yesterday I was puzzling over what to do with the bag full of batting scraps that keeps tipping over in the quilt closet. I like this idea! click here.

Have you got a mountain of batting scraps too?

    Looks like fun, and very scrap-friendly. Thanks for sharing. And, glad I’m not the only one inside with the windows shut and a/c on!

    This is a great block. Love the geometric pattern it creates. Thanks for sharing this.

    I really like the double disappearing 9 patch as it can have such a contemporary look if done in similar colors to the example…but I suppose it could also be traditional if the fabrics were changed. Also…what a great idea for using up leftover strips of batting.

We'd love to hear from you. Leave us a note.
