I’m starting up a little series of posts that feature old blog posts. Kalissa and I have been going back and looking at them. It’s been fun. I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW. Ten years. I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts.
This is one of the first disappearing nine patch quilts that I made. I made it back in October of 2009 for a wedding present. It was so quick and fun to make….I know you’re looking at it and saying, “Um, Jo, that is not a disappearing nine patch.” Truly, it is.
As I was paging through the archives I was trying to find something that I thought you’d all like to be reminded of….this quilt was an easy pick. I’ve talked about it and others I’ve made using the same technique, disappearing nine patch. I thought it was a great time to revisit this pattern.
Still don’t believe me…check out these instructions.
Sew the blocks into nine patches as shown.
Cut those nine patches as shown.
If you’d like a complete set of directions you can follow this LINK.
This technique is about the quickest way to sew a quilt like this together and beats making sashing and sewing strips…WAY easier. That has me thinking I’d love to make another of these quilts again.
Here’s another one Kelli made…it’s Iowa Hawkeye themed. The easy construction makes it so quick and perfect for gifting.
You can find the link for that quilt HERE.
While you were all looking at the quilts, I was thinking, “WOW Jessie and James, who I gifted the quilt to, can’t be married 10 years already…but yes, it’s true”!! I’m also thinking of cutting some of the Kaffe fabrics I’ve gotten into 5″ squares….Hmmm. The self sashing disappearing nine patch lives on!!
