    Super Sized Nine Patch HELP!!!!!!

    Ok, OMG I can't get how one makes the cuts. I understand how to fold and lay fabric ,but that's it. on the diagram, it looks like you only cut one 9" then another 9", ok see I can't even explain it. Can someone please please take a picture on how I make these cuts. I don't know what the heck is wrong with me today.

    Are you asking about the big 9patch that you make 3 different baby blankets out of 3 different fabrics?

    Sounds like it's time to do something else now--maybe some chocolate. When I experience what you're going through now, I quit and go back to it the next day. Everything will go better tomorrow.

    Aw Kristakz now I get it.lol Yes a break with chocolate sounds good lol, but I choose yogart hehehe...I did try the cuts as per the instructions, but had to make an extra cut because like Kristakz diagram (which was soooo great btw) I didn't cut all the way down the center....Yeppy got it. Oh want to share this link which I will also put in the link area to...but want to share here to everyone who helped. This is soooo cool idea for a baby and one doesn't have to make it to go into a car seat...http://www.imperfecthomemaking.com/2...-blankies.html

    Your numbers don't add up. if you're cutting 9x9 piece and then another 9x24, that gives you a piece of fabric 33" length?????

    Yes, a picture would be nice to know what the finished project looks like

    Hi,
    I created the Super-Sized Nine Patch in 2004.
    Please have a look at my pattern courtesy of Quiltmaker Magazine and the video I made with Alex Anderson. I've included the links for you below. And if you have questions, don't hesitate to send me an email.

    I am so glad to see this pattern explored and explained! I've been meaning to try it, but couldn't quite get the cutting instructions. Think I do now, though!
