New Twist to the disappearing Nine Patch

Use just two colors and you get this: (yes, I know I need to iron it!!)


And it can be this?



I had originally planned to make this quilt like the above...but...i just like the way the block stands alone...so I am looking for some pink fabric (plain) for sashing...do you have any Jane?

Don't you love that D9P block?

WOW! This looks great. I have hesitated to use strips but they are prefect in this setting.

Michelle said...

It is beautiful. I never thought about using 2 colours.

Carla said...

Very pretty Barb. I like the sashing idea.

ROFL, it took me a moment to catch on to the Jane reference...I'm thinking "I wonder who Jane is?" I'm a little slow on the upbeat this morning LOL.

Cute quilt BTW

Barb, I really like the blocks and the colors. Did the blocks start with a 9 patch or not? Just wondering how you cut the blocks to get to the final block. It is going to be a very nice quilt!

I love your block, Barb - I haven't done that technique but you've inspired me to give it a try. Thanks for sharing -

The D9P is really very versatile, isn't it? I like what you made with just the 2 colors.

I think it is fun.

I have 100% cotton mens shirts all cut and ready to do into a 9 crazy patch....but my question is...do I need 9 different pieces to make it come out nice? I already have 5 cut up....should I add 4 more? I know you'll know, right Barb?
Smiles,

Hmmm, I wish I had plain for you all i have is the bubble gum print that is pink with the little flowers, it is the right pink, but the flowers might be too much. How about white?

JustCindy said...

Wow! I love the way that turned out.
