    Disappearing nine patch is so fun. First you start with a block looking one way and then like magic you have a block that looks completely different.

    Break over back to sewing. DH had to work today, so Iím trying to get as much done as I can. I need this done for a baby shower on 9/18. I know not really baby colors, but it is going be a boy, so I thought boy not baby. :D

    AHA!! I finally get it!! I am so slow-you literally have to draw me a picture. Or, in this case, post me a picture! :lol: I have not understood the "disappearing nine patch" until right now. :oops:

    I love your disappearing nine patch. The fabrics are adorable and it is going to be a really neat quilt. Please post more pics as you go.

    Oooh - I really like it. I've been thinking my next quilt will be a variety of blocks, and I think I'll include this one. It looks like so much fun.

    Love your colors. I have every intention of doing a disappearing 9-patch and this gives me an idea what to do with some extra charm squares I got in packets. Didn't want to use the kids prints in my scrap quilt but they'll make a great baby/child's quilt. I was thinking of getting rid of them but i guess I'll keep collecting them. . . The fabricholic in me is showing!

    That is so nice and bright! That baby will grow to be a boy soon enough and this quilt will last him for quite a spell. It is lovely.

    The split 9 patch is one of my very favorites. I have made 3 now and none resemble the other - depends upon how you put the "splits" back together.

    Can hardly wait to see thefinished product.

    VERY nice! I love your choice of colors. I really liked that you gave us a "before" block too. Thanx for posting.

    Yes, it is bright. It is the brighest quilt I have ever made. Even if I say so myself it is cute and I have always heard babies like bright colors. :-)

    Thank you all for your comments.

    I am making one with my quilt club right now. We are using 3 fabrics. Your before and after block posts were great. Thank you so much for posting the whole top. I've never had a chance to really look at a 9 patch, or it's variation, that is so scrappy!! Usually, the scrappiness I see is too much and it's hard for me to see what the pattern is.

    This one, you could still very clearly see the pattern. It was great use of your scraps. Each piece is "high lighted" so to speak. I was showing your pics to a friend of mine who is definitely NOT a quilter. She couldn't believe that it was the same block. She's decided she wants one. Maybe I can get her hooked!

    You did a wonderful job on this quilt! And your presentation was great - I think you gave us a "Tutorial". Can't wait to start one now. Thanks!

    It's one of the easiest quilts you can make. Easy is all I do. :D It just looks like a lot of piecing when it is done. Take your 4 batch you like to do and one a few more squares to make it a 9 batch. :D

    I quilted this quilt in the ditch. I used flannel for the backing. Here is a picture of it completed and washed. It was a hit at the baby shower.

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments. :-)
