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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  34. 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.

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

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