Disappearing 9 patch

I found this tutorial on several different blog sites, So I am going to post my blocks.I used 4"x4" squares, I had some cut for 3 years... I know, but I am shopping the UFO bin to keep me busy. anyways I sewed them together to make a 9 patch.
Photobucket
Then I cut them in half in both directions
Photobucket
and twisted them to make a different block.This is going to be a 2 color quilt since I had nothing else to go with them.
Photobucket
it may take awhile for me to show a picture of a more completed project, Since I am using this as a leader and ender project.One of them that ya do not have to really think, just grab squares and start sewing.Thanks for visiting, Amy

I love this pattern. I made a baby quilt and a placemat to practice my free motion quilting on, using this pattern. I can't wait to see it when you are finished.
Be blessed!

Love your quilt blocks! I would had never thought of doing it that way! Thanks for visiting my site. What part of West Virginia did you live in? The flowers on my post are in my yard except for the last picture was at a park in Beckley. I took the pictures about 3 years ago.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Amy. I am thinking of doing this for my giant bag of nickle squares that I have. They are all different, so I am not sure how that will look.

Great fabric choices for the d9p. (or dnp) I think I'll try a two fabric one too... one of these days.

What a cool idea for the 9 patch! I'll have to try that! My son's teacher is expecting a baby this summer--perfect occasion to try it out! Hope you had a great Easter!
