Turnabout Patchwork - Double Disappearing Nine Patch

Back in January, I gave you a sneak peek of a project I was working on.  Today is my turn on the blog hop for a new book by Teresa @ Sewn Up, Teresa Down Under -- Turnabout Patchwork.  You can buy the book here.



I made the Double Disappearing Nine-Patch, and here's my finished quilt.


You start out with a simple nine-patch block using 5-inch squares, that you cut into eight pieces -- the traditional horizontal and vertical cuts, and then you cut each quadrant on the diagonal.


You sew the opposite inner triangles (with pink corners) together and the outer triangles together.


This results in four 6.5-inch blocks -- two blocks that have reverse colours on the top.


And two blocks with a little bit of colour in the corners.


The layout is alternating blocks.  The white centre is a result of operator error (block trimming error), and I didn't have any fabric to make more blocks.


I attempted a flower quilting motif.  Some flowers are a little more organic than others.  😊


I can't wait to try some of the other patterns in the book.


Giveaway:  Teresa has generously offered a free e-book so I can host a giveaway.   For a chance to win, leave a comment.  The giveaway ends at midnight on Monday, February 11.

I think the operator error gives this quilt it's own unique look. Personally I like the white center.

Liz Horgan said...

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who puts a quilt together and finds I didn't have quite enough fabric!! We make it work!!
Your quilt is beautiful!

Anita Jackson @ Domestic Felicity said...

I like how the flowers quilted into your quilt softened it up, very beautiful!

Rose said...

Your design change could have been intentional. It looks like it belongs.

Your operator error looks like the center of a maze! Sometimes mistakes make the design.

Hard to believe that it's a disappearing nine-patch. Thanks for the explanation.

Anita said...

An awesome pattern, a striking result with just a few cuts!

Izzy said...

This is a super fun quilt! I’m really curious about the other fun things in that book.

sue s said...

I love your colors and how the pattern turned out!

eileen said...

Nice interpretation of a 9 patch ! And your white center gives added interest!

Cat S said...

I agree - adding in that plain white square in the center give visual interest to the quilt that it would lack if it were all the same repeating set of blocks. Definitely a good outcome.

Leanne Parsons said...

I love the 'operator error' element of the quilt! It adds a lot of interest to the design :)

Melody Lutz said...

That's Beautiful! And with the tutorial, easy!

Gloria said...

That is one lovely quilt! Who would know it started from a simple Nine Patch - the first block I ever learned.

Jayne said...

I have never tried any disappearing nine patch blocks! I love how you can take a simple block and whack it to pieces to create something so different! You did a fantastic job! It looks so fun!

Sue Payne said...

What fun it is to see how the block “disappears “ and the new shape happens! I love it!

Sandra Walker said...

Oh how I'd love to win this book! It is the coolest! Love how your quilt turned out, wonderful colours and yay you on the new quilting motif! It never ceases to amaze me the endless possibilities one can make with simple shapes!!

Charlene S said...

Interesting procedure. Wonderful colors. Great explanation. Makes me want the book and to make blocks. Thanks for shsring!

Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts said...

The quilt has a stair step look to it. What an interesting way to put a block together.
