Cross quilt, Turnabout Patchwork

This block is a different kind of disappearing nine patch you don’t see very often.

This is a mini version of my Cross quilt Anjeanette of Anjeanette Klinder.

You can play with fabric positioning and get a different quilt altogether. Or you can use stripes and get again a different effect.

On my Turnabout Patchwork book you’ll also find 3 more blocks and quilt patterns under the label disappearing nine patch:

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.
