    I've got 2 totally different looks to my D9P quilts. One is B&W & Turquoise with sashings and cornerstones, set on point. The other is just a scrappy look with all the blocks set together in a straight setting. After doing the two, I really like the one with the sashing best. It's also easier to work with the bulk. When you do them without sashing, sometimes the seams aren't opposite and can be a pain if you don't want to repress everything.

    I'm hoping to get the B&W one quilted this weekend too...started at the least.

    Sorry the pics aren't capturing the whole quilt...my "quilt holder" is working and I'm winging it on my own. :)

    Both of your quilts are Beautiful. You can definitely gegt different looks with different fabrics. Is the D9-patch a free pattern? It looks like this is one that I'll have to put on my forevering growing list of quilts to make.

    I do really like the one set on point. I had not thought of that yet. Thanks for the good idea--I am currently working on a D9P and am not liking how it's coming out so I will try your setting.

    Both quilts are really nice, but really like the first. You may have converted me to this pattern.

    very pretty. I love the one set on point. I have not made one yet but now that I see that one I think I will have to get on the ball. Thanks for posting the picture.

    They are both lovely - I am partial to blue and yellow and green so I like the scrappy one - the different fabrics all add just the right amount of texture or depth but still blend, if you know what I mean.

    No pattern necessary! I see that someone posted a link to a tutorial...that should get you started.

    All you do is use any size squares you want, make a 9-patch, cut it in half both directions, twist or flip flop 2 opposite blocks, then resew together.

    I worked up a chart that should help with sizes:

    My favorite is the first one. It has really changed my opinion about the Disappearing 9 Patch.

    Great idea to add the sashing. What a difference that makes! Wonderfully done!
