QUILT ALONG WITH THIS DISAPPEARING QUILT BLOCK ROW ALONG! YOU’LL EXPLORE NEW FUN TECHNIQUES AND BY THE END YOU’LL HAVE A COMPLETE QUILT!
This month we’ll be sewing up a simple nine patch quilt block and then cutting it up to make it disappear.
Trying to keep it a little simple this month as we are just getting started.
HOW TO MAKE THE DISAPPEARING QUILT BLOCKS – NINE PATCH
Because of the cuts made after the nine patch is sewn, this will determine what the block will end up like. We are going to be turning some of the sections of the blocks or rotating them.
You’ll notice that the center square for the blocks are always the same color. This will help the blocks have some kind of unity or connection with each other.

Download the materials list and tracker sheet here.
The pattern will be available in the shop for FREE for the first month the latest part is released. All previous blocks will be available in the shop for purchase.
You can either print the PDF or you can simply view it on your laptop while you sew, saving a few printing pages.
The basic idea with this nine patch block is to sew it up and then cut it up.
The pdf will walk you through how we are cutting the nine patch quilt block up.
After you cut it apart…you’ll be sewing it back together again! This time you’ll be moving a few pieces and shifting others prior to sewing it together again. This will give you a whole new block and the nine patch will simply disappear.
Depending on your fabric placement, your new block will be totally different. Sometimes you’ll find a repeat again without even planning it.
