Our teacher for this class had 5 inch squares all cut out. We each got enough sport squares, solid reading, and white squares and directions to make a block. Here they are all sewn together. (sorry that picture's so dark, I should really try to fix that )
With her permission, here are just a few of the options of what can be done with the disappearing 9 patch block assembly:
(I think the blue and the brown is what we made, pictured above)
this is my favorite . . .
It's just fascinating to me that sewing 9 squares of equal size together can produce so many different designs.
A friend of mine was in San Francisco and sent me these pictures. Pretty cool, huh?
I have 2 mini packs of this great new line, just barely out in stores, Morningside Farm by Darlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufman (84 little squares in each pack . . . . THAT'S A LOT!!!) If you'd like a chance to win them, leave me a nice comment below.
