    Super Sized Nine Patch HELP!!!!!!

    Ok, OMG I can't get how one makes the cuts. I understand how to fold and lay fabric ,but that's it. on the diagram, it looks like you only cut one 9" then another 9", ok see I can't even explain it. Can someone please please take a picture on how I make these cuts. I don't know what the heck is wrong with me today.

    Are you asking about the big 9patch that you make 3 different baby blankets out of 3 different fabrics?

    Sounds like it's time to do something else now--maybe some chocolate. When I experience what you're going through now, I quit and go back to it the next day. Everything will go better tomorrow.

    Aw Kristakz now I get it.lol Yes a break with chocolate sounds good lol, but I choose yogart hehehe...I did try the cuts as per the instructions, but had to make an extra cut because like Kristakz diagram (which was soooo great btw) I didn't cut all the way down the center....Yeppy got it. Oh want to share this link which I will also put in the link area to...but want to share here to everyone who helped. This is soooo cool idea for a baby and one doesn't have to make it to go into a car seat...http://www.imperfecthomemaking.com/2...-blankies.html

    Your numbers don't add up. if you're cutting 9x9 piece and then another 9x24, that gives you a piece of fabric 33" length?????

    Yes, a picture would be nice to know what the finished project looks like

    I am so glad to see this pattern explored and explained! I've been meaning to try it, but couldn't quite get the cutting instructions. Think I do now, though!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Hi Anita, I tried to view the video, but was unable to, on the hgtv the video wasn't available, unless only US people can view it and in that case I'm from Canada. But thanks soooo much for offering to help. Oh wow I just went to your one blog about the square on point method, I'll have to check to see if I have that issue...

    You start with 1 yard of fabric - 36" x 42". Fold in quarters and trim down to 18x21" (make sure you trim on the unfolded edges. Then, after the cuts, the total length is 9" + 24" + 9" = 42"(unfolded). In the folded case, you have a 9x9" square upper right, 9x12" rectangle below it. 9x9 upper left (with a fold), and 9x12 lower left (which unfolds to 18x24).

    Thank you AnitaGrossmanSolomon and kristakz! This is great! It looks fast and easy, and it's something that we can do in our little church quilting group for missions!

    Ive made several of these 9 patch quilts - super easy. Any idea where I can get the pattern for Super Size Square On Point quilt? Looks like another good one.

    this is a great pattern. I used it to make blankets for a son's dogs (they didn't care was thhe result might be )
    quick & easy.
    Just a thought if you're making charity quilts quantity- how about putting 4 together for a larger top. you could also mix around the pieces between them for variety

    Nice to meet you Anita. I picked up the copy of winter 2012, Volume 6 Quiltmaker magazine at the store on Monday. I was particularly drawn to your Kaleidscope Log Cabin pattern (block 528). Thanks for the links.

    Thank you ,Anita for your innovative thinking about making quilts!! I saw you do this one on Alex's show and have had it in the back of my mind just waiting for someone to have a baby! I just finished your Anita's Arrowheads (saved from Quiltmaker magazine years ago). I loved your technique and know the 12 year old boy will love his "not girly" quilt.

    I just made three of these for my GDIL's baby shower. Everybody there loved them. They said they had never seen any like them.

    Super-size square on point looks pretty simple. Take two squares of fabric (36x36, if you want to stick with a 1-yard quilt). Fold both in quarters. Cut each on the diagonal (one single cut - that's itl) - leaving the folded edges on one side of your cut, and the unfolded raw edges on the other. Do this to both fabrics. You get one center square, and 4 triangles. Swap the triangles, sew them to the corners of the opposite coloured center square, and voila. Square it up. Considering loss for seams and squaring, you get two 34x34" (or so) blankets.

    Here is a picture of the super 9 patch I am finishing. It's bright enough, and intended for a little girl who is due next month.
