disappearing nine patch…

hello possums….

I’m discovering that I love SCRAPPY… and taking traditional blocks and playing with them…

This traditional disappearing nine patch was so much fun being scrappy, the scrap bin was overloaded and thats an understatement…

scrappy 9 patch

you start with a nine blocks 6 1/2″ square block x 9 blocks, so that’s 81 different colours…

sew 3 rows by 3 forming 9 big blocks, press

then take your cutter and slice in the middle both

horizontal and vertically thru the middle

which then gives you a square with a small square and rectangle either side…

giving you 36 new blocks….

mix them up, sew back together in a 4 block…

now I wanted this to be a new picnic blanket for me so I

added a strip of white sashing in between, to make slightly bigger….
