    I have decided to make a disappearing nine block quilt lap quilt.
    I picked out the fabric using 9 different Fat quarters.
    You can follow my progress on http://www.thriftyideastoday.com/
    I will also post my finished project here. I can't wait to see how this will look once done. This will be my third quilt. If you have finished a disappearing nine block quilt please post pictures. I would love to see the different ways they are put together. Well off to get my sewing machine ready to sew.

    Carol, that is a fun quilt to make! I am waiting to get mine back from the LAQ- I made a king and wasn't about to tackle the quilting on it!
    Have fun!!!

    PS. I would get one dark fabric for the center block though. You want it to pop.

    Love the fabrics. Where the doggies? (just kidding)
    I really do like the fabrics. I have not done this pattern yet but plan too. Looks like fun. Can't wait to see yours when you get it done.
    Have fun. :thumbup:

    I went to Walmart last night to pick up a 4 inch block template. They had a bin full of 5 pack fat squares - One had two patterns with cats. I looked at the fabric quality and it looked fine. So for $7.00 I figured why not. I had a few fat quarters at home that I was able to add to make the nine different patterns. I wish they did have a dog pattern since I want to make two lap quilts for my grown sons for Christmas. The cats work well for me since I have Three kitties at home.
