    I will throw in my vote for the disappearing 9 patch as well. It really does go together easily. I am currently working on a similar problem for my step daughter. I am making it as a Mock Log Cabin block, on point. uses less blocks and the triangles take much less time to cut and add to the rows. Good luck.

    Remember, fabric choice makes all the difference.

    That would solve all your problems of "favoring" one sister over the other. LOL

    Hi. I like the Rail Fence or a 9 Patch. Either one you choose will tell them they are special and how much you care. A gift quilt is a heart gift . Lucky people. Marvel

    Look at the pattern "Jewel Box" by Janice Pope, aka Anything But Boring. It is a disappearing 9 patch but looking at her layout it really looks impressive. Simple. Matter a fact when you go to her website it is part of her header. http://anythingbutboring.com/

    I enlarged this Rainy Day quilt pattern by adding extra blocks. I cut, pieced and completed the top this past weekend. I chained pieced the crap out of it. I did a 7 x 8 block layout and my quilt top is 70x80 inches I believe or around that area. I have not actually measured it. Here is the blog where I found the pattern

    Look at the quilt on this thread for a disappearing nine patch from batiks that is truly stunning:

    I have my eye on this pattern called Nature Rhythms by Johnny Karwan:

    I'm thinking it would look great even if I simplify by eliminating the gray strips and using squares of Asian fabrics. Seems to me this is a really nice pattern for some of those prints I don't know what to do with.

    I also like the BQ, BQ2 & BQ3 patterns from Maple Island Quilts.

    I agree this is super fast and easy - BQ2 - it is all in the fabric

    This is my go to - it isn't too old fashioned for me (a lot of the quick ones are for me) and your focus fabric can really make it - here it is in Hawaiian prints...

    I made it in Spiderman fabrics and it looked totally different. It goes together VERY quick. Caution though - not sure if they updated the pattern or not but the last two borders were not correct so don't cut those out right away to be on the safe side - or draw it out and do the math to make sure it's good to go.
