    d9p ?

    Would it look alright if I used just three colors (same fabrics) for a d9p and each block before cutting the same? Any pictures using just 3 fabrics would be appreciated?

    I did one with just 3 colors and it looked alright but I like the look using more than 3 colors. I gave the quilt top to my DSL because I didn't like the colors I used. I probably would have liked it better using more than 3 colors.

    d9p

    Here's another. But if you go to the search window here on the board and type in disappearing nine patch or d9p, you'll see lots more. I like using 3 fabrics myself.

    Thank you! I wasn't really pleased with the contrasts and wanted something to brighten and lift it a bit. The quilt fits on my double bed, and the double set of stripes sit on the width of the bed. Makes it easy for making the bed and squaring up the quilt!!

    I think using just 3 colors the block appears to float.

    I like these with three colors. I have a special fabric that it might work with quite well. Thank you for asking the question.

    I like the ones with 3 fabrics. I'm getting ready to make one with 5 fabric with pinwheels. Here is the website of the patteren in case anyone is interested.

    Do a search on here for -"black, white and turquoise" lovely D9P. My friend just started a D9P with one med size print and two small coordinating prints - looks really cute!

    I like using just three fabrics for a D9P, though I tend to make my first border a different color. Here are three pictures. The first two are cat-sized for my mother's cat, but the last is a twin size. In each I used a focus fabric that was one directional, but once I figured out how to do that, the rest was pretty easy. Hope this helps....

    Thanks for asking about 3 color D9P. I like the results much better than the multi-color ones. More pattern, less business.
