    Split Nine Patch Quilt

    I saw this quilt at a quilt show and was interested in making it. It is called a Split Nine Patch. I am a very visual person and really need written instructions. I would like to make one out of scrappy calico prints. I understand the concept of sewing a nine patch square then cutting it once diagonally. Where I am confused is with the light white off white squares and cutting it. I looks like one square in this unit is a dark square.

    Can anyone help me with better directions?

    Bonnie Hunter is using Split Nine Patch for the Leader and Ender project this year. If you go to her site www.quiltville.blogspot.com and click on the free patterns tab at the top, you will find a nice tutorial on that pattern as well as many different way to use that block.

    I do not believe that these blocks are sewn and then cut - it is similar to this quilt we made from the book Open a Can of Worms by Debbie Caffery.

    That being said it looks to me that the block is assembled as in the second image.

    Wow, I have always liked this pattern...and these are gorgeous. I swear if I made all the quilts I love, I would have to live forever. Cause you know, we all constantly add quilts to our 'want to do' list.

    I can't imagine why this is called a split 9 patch. It's simply square after square with some squares being made of two triangles.

    The main block is a very simple 4 x 4 patch with the adjoining blocks containing the HST to make the points. And 4 patch cornerstones.

    Maybe I'm missing something

    That's what I see too, but I was looking at it as a 4 x4 with squares adn triangles making the sashing. Your pattern is much easier to see.

    I've made this quilt. I assembled the blocks like eparys suggested. Looking at that block, divide it by 4. That is your 9 patch. The first row is light, light, 1/2 triangle, the second is dark, dark, light, the third is 1/2 triangle,dark, dark. It's a beautiful pattern!

    Interesting that Missouri says a daughter designed that quilt when it is quilterscache's 'Sunny Days'.

    So what does the "split" refer to? Very misleading in my opinion.
