Disappearing 9 Patches are so much fun and super fast to make!!! They were some of the first quilts that I learned to make. It is simply starting with a 9 patch, and then cutting it in half vertically and horizontally, flipping 2 blocks, and sewing them back together. And just like that, adorable disappearing 9 patch quilts!!!
And then I tried a new little twist of making the 9 patch blocks, slicing them, but then instead of sewing them back together, adding some fun sashing. I love the added modern flair it gives it ;)
And I still kept playing with this block!!! I discovered that by playing with the placement of the colors in your 9 patch blocks, you could create all new variations. These look like they are 4 patches that have been sashed, but nope, just a disappearing 9 patch block that is so much faster than sashing ;) I did a tutorial way back when for these that you can check out here if you want to make your own ;)
Anyhow, if you haven't tried a Disappearing 9 Patch block yet, you totally want to add it to your "To Make" list. They are so much fun and super fast and the possibilities are endless!!!
