    I've never done or seen a D9P and have some questions. When you choose your fabric, how many colors can you use? What size should the nine blocks be? It sounds like fun.

    a D(P is a nine patch that you cut in half lengthwise then widthwise,then you can turn them anyway you wish and sew them back together,that the best description I could give,Im sure someone else can decribe it better

    I've made them with every block a different color and I've made them with just three colors -- it depends on the look you are going for. Here's a link to a simple three color one that I find appealing:

    Thank you so much. At least now I know which way I'm headed. I would love to do one with turquoise and brown. Marion

    Look at the nine patches after they are cut apart...some are left at full size and some smaller. Decide which of your fabrics you want in the larger and smaller squares :D:D:D

    3 1/2" squares will yield 8" finished blocks... so it depends on what size finished blocks you are looking for :wink:

    Okay. How 'bout if I start with 24" squares. That'll get me done in a hurry

    It's late in the afternoon and I have been cleaning up my garden trying to get ready to plant by Feb 15th. (if it ever gets warm), and I'm now in my silly stage.

    Great idea! Here is a link that made the pattern much easier for me to understand.
