Stacy and I worked together to make this “Disappearing Nine Patch” quilt. She pieced the top, I quilted it, and she bound it. It will be presented to a veteran as part of the Quilts of Valor program that we both support.
Believe it or not, the blocks in this quilt were once giant Nine Patches! Stacy cut 5″ squares from batik fabric: dark blue, light blue and red. She sewed 20 giant Nine Patches, placing the colors for all the blocks as shown below.
Then she cut all the blocks in quarters and rearranged the pieces, placing them on her “design wall.”
I love the way the small red squares move across the surface of the quilt! Stacy sewed the blocks into rows and then joined the rows to make the quilt. Red binding finishes off the project. You can read more about this quilt on Stacy’s blog here.
