Disappearing 9 patch block construction
Learn how to make this block in less than 1 minute:
If you prefer printing the sequence you can see it below.
Make a 9 patch block combining 5 colour charm squares with 4 white ones. Use darker tones for the centre square for contrast.
Iron the 9 patch block and cut it in half and then in half again.
Change the resulting smaller blocks around to form a disappearing 9 patch block like below.
Stitch together and iron flat.
Assemble as per photo making sure the small squares in each block face the same way.

Order my book Turnabout Patchwork
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
