    I am making a disappearing 9 patch for my friend. Since I am handsewing it, quilting line goes just diagonally with three straight lines. How is everyone working on the quilting lines? Stipples?

    youme, do you mean you hand pieced it? or you are hand quilting it? I can't imagine making this pattern with hand piecing because you slice through the stitching, but maybe you could find a way.

    Yes, I hand pieced it and hand quilting. I sewed it with very tiny stitches and cut it with rotally cutter. Let me show you my disappearing nine patch quilt when it all done.

    Bev, it's really easy. I've made a couple.
    Just make your 9 patch, then cut it in half, then in half again. Then arrange the blocks to where you like them the best!
    Easy, peasy!

    When I first joined this forum, I was introduced to the D9P. It looked sooo challenging. So I googled Disappearing P Patch directions. There were some good tutorials that came up. Some of them have been given on the board. My favorite is the one that used the same center patch consistently. I think the little squares form a butterfly. Butterflies are my favorites.

    Cathie, your pastel was made by making up 5 different blocks using the same color with the white, right? I love that one. They are all great. All of you gals did well. :thumbup: I've made 2 D9P tops so far, but neither has been finished. One is layered, the other is still waiting. :?

    gcathie, I LOVE those pastel blocks. I think I must go dig through my stash and see what I can come up with.

    I like the D9P as well as about any. It is so easy to create different looks, by the placement of color, or how you lay out the blocks when re-sewing. Our group came up with three different patterns when re-sewing and one new one when putting the blocks together. I like to use 3 colors.

    I'm getting ready to start another one. I got out my colored pencils as I couldn't quite make a good decision.

    SO...I used pencil as my Thomas fabric that I've already purchased, then red for red and blue for blue. I drew out the pattern of 9 D9P blocks with red as the center square and blue for the sides, then drew out another the same way with red for the sides and blue for the center. I couldn't believe how different they ended up. It really helped me figure out what to put where. I can't wait to start stitching.

    Hi,

    I have been using that nine patch patern to use up the 5 fat quarter packs I get from Micheals and A.C. Moore with their 40 or 50% off coupons. They make great Linus quilts.

    Hi Gals...I'm not always able to come by..but checked in to find this post...and surprised..I am currently working on this very same pattern. I LOVE IT. Mine is done with the Faded Memories collection and is perfect for my Shabby Chic look. I am putting wide rick rack on each square going in different directions. CUTE.

    I loved looking at what has been done here.

    Happy Quilting.
