Disappearing 9 Patch- Double Twist

Disappearing 9 Patch- Double Twist

This is such a crazy disappearing quilt block.  Didn’t think it could be done any differently than the previous blocks.

The regular disappearing 9 Patch and the disappearing 9 patch- Criss Cross.

Disappearing 9 patch- Double Patch Quilt Block Tutorial | patchworkposse

You will be following the same rules as the original disappearing 9 patch.  Watch for the new step though…..that’s what gives this block and extra little bit of fun.

Materials Needed:

9 — 5″ X 5″ squares

Disappearing 9 patch:  Double Twist Tutorial~

1)  Sew up your 9 patch using the 9– 5″ squares

2)  Cut your 9 patch in half diagonally and horizontally


3)  Take 2 of the blocks and lay together– right sides facing AND the corner blocks will be OPPOSITE each other.


4)  Sew all the way around the block 1/4″ seams


5)  Cut from corner to corner on each block.  You will now have 4 pieces.


6)  Open and iron and repeat with the other pair of squares

7)  Play with your layout with the new squares– there a lot!

These blocks were a lot of fun to sew up and to play with the layout.  I am working on a few more and soon will have a project to share!

Just in case you are big fan of these…the basics are on a little card that you can keep in your sewing room {and share with others} to remind you of how to cut your blocks.   Print them off here!

    I’m interested in playing around with new layouts so will definitely be giving this tutorial a try very soon. Thanks for the cards too.

    In step 2 shouldn’t that read “cut VERTICALLY and horizontally”? If you cut diagonally, I think you’re going to have a problem!

    I guess I am old fashioned but I liked it at the beginning and for me it was spoiled with all the cutting etc.

    Perfect, thank you. Been getting a little tired of the old pattern. Have some fabrics I can do this with, can’t wait!

    What is the exact square size when finish.

    I’m not sure! It’s been awhile since the block was sewn….but it does have 2 new seams eating up the fabric from the original size.
    And, it will also depend on what size of squares you begin with as well. You can use any size, just as long as they are equal.
