  3. Teresa, these are so clever. You are so talented. I am fairly new to quilting. I do it all by hand as I have no sewing machine. Please, will you share advice about the disappearing 9-patch variation that uses two blocks cut on both diagonals? (1) Can you give me any insights into best strategies if I want to use fewer colors/patterns in the cloth for a more uniform and less scrappy look? Where is it best to place the solids and the designs of the 5-inch cut squares? I notice the polka dots come together in your example, and I see how that works. But if I want to use fewer colors, will that work best and look nice? (2) Will these blocks look good with sashes of a light or dark fabric around each, or should the blocks be sewn directly to blocks? Any other tips you can share would greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

  4. Because the block pieces are swapped, the best way is to have 2 blocks in 2 coordinated colours with the same background fabric. One has the darkest pieces in the corners and the other in the middle making a cross. Get a piece of paper and some crayons, draw your blocks and then start colouring and you can see how it would work with fewer colours. I hope this helps.
