    Many of us use the 5 inch charm size but other sizes work well also. Remember the larger the square you start with the less scrappy it will look. Do a search for D9P and see the different ones people have made.

    I've used 6" squares to start. Both of the D9P's I've worked on were not scrappy and had a focus fabric that I really wanted to stand out. It really depends on what you're looking for.

    Love the Paisley!! I'm a paisley lover also! Most definitely do a D9P on the Search. I've made them from 3" squares all the way up to 12" squares (I had a paisley that I wanted to dominate the pattern). There are many beautiful, beautiful pictures on here. Do the search, you'll be glad you did!! :-)

    I tried one with 3 1/2" squares, only I strip sewed them first. I quickly learned to hate it so now it's gone into my UFO basket. I've seen some beautiful ones on here, unfortunately mine isn't.

    It's really looking good. Be sure to let us see it when it's finished.
