Holiday trellis quilt, a pattern from Turnabout patchwork book

Double disappearing 9 patch, Turnabout patchwork book, Teresa Mairal Barreu

You’ve probably seen lots of disappearing nine patch blocks, I’ve made a few myself. But what about double disappearing nine patch blocks?

You’ll find all the double disappearing nine patch blocks on the photo in Turnabout patchwork.

So you can see all the variations in a real project we’re joined by Sherry of Powered by Quilting, Bobbi of Snowy Days Quilting, Anja of anjaquilts, Mania of Mania for Quilts, Sandra of Textile Time Travels and Anjeanette of Anjeanette Klinder.

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.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

See all the quilts in the book in a real life project


  1. I loved the complete instructions by Snowy Day Quilting; and got a great idea on how to do a label. I liked the way Mania showed an alternative, modern arrangement of the same block. Thanks for the blog hop!


  2. I think I have fallen for the Stepping Stones quilt – great modification of the disappearing 9-patch block!
    thanks for doing this


  3. Oh goodness, I want to make every quilt I have seen!! Stepping Stones and Holiday Trellis are yelling at me to make them!!!


  4. Really loved Bobbi’s from Snowy Quilts. But all the quilts used with the pattern were very interesting. A very versatile block.
