    I would like to try to make a disappearing 9 patch but was wondering if anybody has ever made a scrappy one, all the ones I have found seem to have a more uniform colour scheme. I have quite a few bits of flannel that I would like to use (enough of each to make one block) but there are lights & darks. Any suggestions?

    I'm no expert - in fact I'm a new quilter, but I've fallen in love with the dissapearing 9-patch pattern and I'm currently working on 2 of them. One of them is fairly uniform, with a limited number of fabrics and with standard 2-colour 9-patch blocks, cut up.

    The other one is a mini-quilt (for my quilt guild's challenge) which I made from nine different charm squares, to make a single 9-patch.

    I like the one with 9 diferent fabrics *much* better, and that's how I'm going to do them from now on.

    So my vote is - go ahead and make a scrappy 9-patch - I bet it will look beautiful!

    And I'm thinking about doing a big quilt with just scraps cut into 4" or 5" blocks....

    Wow, I really like the scrappy ones. Maybe even more than the traditional ones.

    I love the scrappy ones. I will have to try that soon. I think I will make one for my twin. Our b'day is coming up! We'll be 27 again (haha)

    Thanks, that's what I'm going to do, I really think that DP9 is great, looks complicated but isn't really (I say this before I have started one.)

    That is exactly right. They look complicated but really isn't. They are a lot of fun too! I used the D9P to make an I Spy quilt.

    I cut up scraps into 5 inch squares and made a D9patch with them. It is such a versitile pattern.
