As I was talking to my best friend Melissa, she mentioned she was getting back into quilting. She had signed up for some quilt-alongs. I thought that sounded like fun. Even thought I didn't sign up for any quilt-alongs I wanted to try something "easy". I found several free block patterns online and decided on the Disappearing Nine Patch.
Another thing I wanted to do was use up some of my fabric I had stored away. The colors I had the most of were black, white and turquoise. One thing I found not easy was cutting the fabric the traditional quilters way, using the rotary cutter and ruler. I went with the non-traditional way and made a pattern to reuse. Hey, that is the way I feel most comfortable doing it.
The following is a picture of my 9 squares sewn together. Then you cut then in half horizontally and vertically.
Next, you take the four squares and turn them until get a pattern you like. Then sew those squares together.
This is my quilt about two-thirds of the way done.
Anyway, this is my quilt (well wall hanging). I will post a picture later.
