    Finished lap quilt: diferent flavor of Hidden/Disappearing 9 patch

    I won our guild's block raffle sometime last year: Block instructions are posted in our newsletter, and whoever wants to try the block brings one to the next meeting. Everyone that contributes a block gets their name in the hat, and one person takes home all the blocks.

    This block is a variation on the d9p. It took me a long time to come up with a way to turn the blocks into a quilt that I liked. But when I added the little stars in the sashing, I was really happy. It seemed kind of patriotic, with all the blues and the white, but I didn't really like any red that I tried to add to the top. So, I used a lot of red in the backing. Best thing was, I didn't buy any new fabric to complete this!

    Lucky you for winning the blocks and what a wonderful quilt you made with them. You're right. Those little stars take the quilt from nice to spectacular.

    Funny! It's also called the disappearing 4 patch! Doing it the 9 patch way, you end up sewing it back together as a 4 patch--the 4 patch pattern you end up sewing it back as a 9 patch and the pieces are smaller...hummmm

    Your quilt ended up just wonderful! I hope you won't be offended when I say I love the back even more than the front! Lucky you to have won all those great blocks.

    I just created cornerstone squares in white, and rectangular sashing strips (the width of the blocks) in blue. Then on each end of the blue strips, I added corner "ears" (I'm not sure if these have a formal name!) in white.
