    Video Tutorial - Magicians 9 Patch

    I have had alot of interest in the Magicians 9 patch quilt that I posted in the Pictures section, http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...h-t242320.html about how I made this block that I decided to make a video tutorial for it ! This video goes from the very start to the very end on making the block !




    If you are having trouble watching the video please
    To make the block with the same sizes I have in the video you will need the following :
    5 - 4.5 inch Color/Print Squares
    4 - 4.5 inch White/ Background Squares
    1 - 6.25 inch Color/Print Square
    4 - 6.25 White/Background Squares

    Thanks SOQ for the very detailed and explicit Mag. 9 patch tutorial and video. I really enjoyed your video and plan to try this in the near future. So kind of you to take the time to do a video instead of just writing down some instructions.
    I like how you chain pieced ad kept them all together, great idea, now the blocks are really all together and no guessing, also it rally will help keep the seams in the right spot. I like to find out how others do speed quilting or short cuts. Thanks again for the video-Like your quilt.

    enjoyed the tutorial. However, since I missed your original posting of a picture would have liked a quick look at it either at beginning or end of tutorial.

    Video informational but a little slow moving......I know if I tried cutting with my left hand, since I am right handed, there would not be a square... I prefer to cut right side, top....flip block half circle and reposition ruler and sliver cut, if necessary, the right and top again....only using same cutter...but, that is why we are individual with our processes and finished projects......

    Thank you, I am better able to visualize how to make one. I am one that likes to see what I need to do before I start.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! It is so much easier for me when I can "see" it done. I love the way you chain piece all the blocks together. Less room for mistakes

    Very good tutorial. I've made a jillion 9 patch blocks, but mine never were as perfect as yours. I am going to follow your method the next time I make them. I especially like the idea of marking your ruler for the squaring up process. Thanks you for taking the time to show this to us. Someone commented it seemed to drag a bit, but with your "production set-up" I am not sure there is any way to avoid that. In the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorials with their high end cameras, they do a lot of fading in and out so that after the first time, they can skip to the end of the next seam "magically". I really am impressed with what you can do with what I think is just your laptop camera.
    God Bless,
    Rachel

    Impressive! I love the way you showed to trim the first 9 patch block getting the diagonal correct in the center block. This has always been a problem for me. Problem solved!!!!!!

    The rest is great too. Cudos to you

    What a great tutorial.... love it. You certainly have made 9-patch blocks easier for all of us. And, the finished quilt is great. Did you do a quilt as you go? I see the sashing on the back so that suggests to me that that's the method you used. Would you do a QAYG tutorial as well? Just saying..... that's something I'd like to see done. I've never tried that.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!
