This is a collection of 4 disappearing 9-patch blocks.

All of them start as 9 patch blocks and by slicing the block in different ways we can obtain quite different looking blocks.

All of them are charm square friendly.

Tips for making this block

Choose your fabrics carefully. Choose high contrasting fabrics.

Placement of 5 inch squares is important. Choose your colours and values with the following in mind:

  • the middle square will become the small dots in the resulting block
  • the squares in the middle of the 9 patch original block, the ones in a cross pattern, will be sliced in half and become the strips in the resulting block
