Woman Sews 9 Squares In A Block, Slices Down The Middle Making Disappearing Blocks!

I’m sure a lot of you have seen or made a quilt like this, but I’d never seen one of these and it certainly piqued my interest! This is a quick and easy block. If you prefer, you can make it easier by using charm squares.

I know that a lot of you are beginners at quilting and I thought I would share this tutorial with you so you can make your own. Even though it’s a fairly easy block, when you are learning to quilt, it makes it so much easier to see it done in real life. Right?

For starters on making this quilt is after you have a block with nine patches all sewn together, the block should measure about 12.5 x 12.5 square.

In order to make the disappearing nine patch part. Take your nine patch block and cut it in fourths right down the middle. This will make four separate quadrants. I found the easiest way to get the center was to measure 2 inches from the middle block, but you can find center however is easiest for you.

You should then have 4 blocks that measure 6-1/4 x 6-1/4. How many you need total, will depend on the size you desire for the finished quilt. To make more blocks continue the process over with step one again.
The fun part about this quilt is you can re-arrange the blocks in almost any design you want to make it fit your taste.
