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

Disappearing 9 patch quilt tutorial. Quick and easy quilt

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.
