Video tutorial: disappearing 9 patch block

File 28-11-2015, 6 22 57 PM

The block below is a finished disappearing 9-patch block.

And another block from the same quilt.

This block looks deceptively hard to make, but it’s not.

How to make a disappearing 9-patch block

Materials for one block

Cut nine 5 inch squares for the 9 patch block.

This quilt can be made scrappy or in coordinated colours.

Use highly contrasting fabrics for better more defined results.

To make this block really quickly, use 5 inch charm squares. In fact the block below is made with charm squares.

Do you want to make this block into a quilt?

I made a disappearing nine patch quilt using this block a few years ago. I used charm squares for it.

Make an interesting back for your quilt and it can be reversible.
