Disappearing 9 Patch Quilt Block – Criss Cross Cut

The 9 patch quilt block is seriously one of the most basic and easy quilt block.   Mix it up with a few fun rotary cuts and you have yourself a super quick, simple and easy to sew quilt block!

The world of disappearing quilt blocks is a fun one….today we are going to mix it up with a few extra cuts.

Disappearing 9 Patch Quilt Block– Criss Cross Cut

Disappearing Quilt Block Instructions:

1)  Sew your 9 patch together.  The squares I used are 5″ X 5″  and are 30’s style of prints.

2)  Cut the block like a standard 9 patch disappearing quilt block.  The cuts will go down the center of the block, up and down and sideways

3)  Here comes the fun— make 4 more cuts.  Take the squares and cut them diagonally from corner to corner— notice the direction they are cut for each section~

4)  Move things around– there are a few options.  Play with it for a bit and then decide your favorite combination

5)  Sew the triangles together again to make a square

6)  Sew the 4 blocks together to make a square again

The block unfinished measured 13″ X 13″  Kind of an ‘off’ size, but if I kept making them they would all be consistent and easy to sew together, so it isn’t too big of a deal.

    Hi Becky! Thank you for your efforts on your patterns and this post on disappearing 9 patch blocks! I have a problem….
    This freebie is connected to Craftsy! I signed up prev, but now it does not recognize my account and it will not let me sign up a new account. Is there any way to offer the freebie without attaching to Craftsy?
    Thanks again, Leslie

    With the disappearing nine patch, how are you ironing the seams-opened or to one side?
