    A couple months back (before I became a member) I was browsing the messages and someone had submitted a picture of a disappearing nine patch bedspread that had a large block with a flower motif and white background. Would it be possible to get directions for that pattern?

    Thank you!

    Hello, and welcome from Missouri!
    If you "search" for D9P here on this board, you will get lots of ideas, and I think there is a tutorial as well.

    It is a nine patch that has been cut in half horizontally and vertically. Then you rearrange these blocks into different patterns. You can get many looks from these blocks :wink:

    One of my favorite "quicky" quilt patterns. You can twist and turn the cut blocks in all kinds of directions to get all kinds of different looks. There are tons of articles and tutorials on D9P on the net.... Good luck!! It's easy and fun.

    The D9P was the first block I learned about when I joined the QB. It is so much fun and so versatile. Welcome to the board from South Louisiana.

    I've looked at a lot of D N P's and they all use prints. How would one look with 3 colors: white, mint green, and pink??

    Hey, Retired-teacher-and -loving-it. Welcome from another retired teacher and loving it. I can picture the 4 mint green squares in the corners, the 4 white squares in the middle of each row, and the pink in the very middle. I can also picture red, white, and blue with the red in the middle.

    Thanks, I might even try reversing the pink and green!

    Here is the link for the tutorial that someone made for this quilting board... It is easier to understand and to see the actual designs that can be made.
