    Should any of the pieces intersect when laying out the D9P? I saw a video and they said they shouldn't but I've seen it done with so many different looks I didn't know if there was a rule to make it be a true D9P. Help!

    My little bright pieces that had been the center square would have touched if I hadn't using sashing. Put D9P in the search box and look at the possibilities. There is no set way to arrange your cut up blocks.

    I think you can arrange them anyway you want.

    I agree, you can arrange them any way you want. I just made two small quilts for cats, and I really like this arrangement.

    I have made a couple and love them because they are so easy....I'm not sure if there is a true D9P but I have made both of mine so that there are as few inserections as possible.....why match up points when you don't have to...if it still makes a great quilt....am just about to start another for my daughter as a christmas present.

    ok, there are NO quilt police- you will not get in trouble if you do it your way, it just makes it more unique, i suggest you search, and make your own creative decision!!
    good luck

    I like the "pinwheel layout" of d9p, too.

    You can arrange them any way you want. I prefer to swap the opposite corners because I like the secondary pattern it creates.

    Here is one I am working on. I used the same turquoise batik for all the center squares and many different black/white/gray prints for the rest of the 9 patch. When I swap out the opposite corners, the turquoise forms a secondary pattern.

    Play around with your blocks until you find a pleasing arrangement.
