    I discovered in my stash a stack of 5" squares, decided to try DP9 and was wondering if you could just pick up and sew any piece willy nilly scrappy or if it really made a difference in the color value/placement???? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have the DP9 tutorial and she mentioned the placement of dark squares in center and four corners but I don't think I have enough dark/lights to do it this way. What do you wonderful, sharing, caring people think????

    I did one recently and used the same fabric in only the center of each 9 patch and lots of different ones in the other 8 squares of the 9 patch. It came out really cute.

    Ok, I can admit that I don't know everything. What is DP9?

    Disappearing nine patch. They are a very easy pattern and so versatile.

    I think you should make one any way you want. There are no rules. "Experiments" can be unexpected masterpieces.

    Keep in mind the center will be cut into 4 pieces. If you want it a focus fabric it needs to be on a corner.

    I still don't get it. I mean I know what a 9 patch is, but I've never heard of a disappearing one. I need a visual
