    The date on the bottom is very wrong. Just haven't figured out how to reset it.(not a priority I guess)

    I love how this turned out. How did you arrange the 3 colors in the 9 patch to get this pattern. I really like it.

    The butterflies is in the 4 outside corners, Lightest blue is middle square and the darker blue is on the other 4. after it is cut in the middle each piece is turned one time to the right.

    What gorgeous fabric. I love them all but especially that butterfly one.

    I have a question that is only kind of "on topic" for this. Can someone explain why this particular block is called a disappering nine patch?? I am at a loss. However the more quilts I see done in this simple yet great block the more I am thinking I might want to make one myself. I was just wondering why D9P has that name as to me it bears no resemblance to a 9 patch but maybe I am missing some clever subtility to it.

    Thanks, I have a quilt I have been wanting to do in that pattern but only have 3 so that will work perfect. Thanks so much for sharing.

    well, it does start out as a 9 patch and after it is cut it dissapears! that is my thinking. I too kept looking at them and love it so this is my take on it. It is an easy one to do & with many patterns to choose from!

    My thinking is 3 fabrics and it won't look scrappy, looks more planned. I like scrappy but just didn't want one this time. lol

    for a disappearing nine patch,after the nine patch is made ,you cut it once horizontally and then once vertically.then you turn the oieces around and sew them back together to make a neat design,really fun to do
