Design Wall Monday 07/01/13
So I've been working a few more of these blocks. They are called Window Pane Disappearing Nine Patch (D9P) blocks. First you start with making a nine-patch block with sashing strips to look like a tic-tac-toe block. I used charm pack squares (5" squares) and 1 1/2" cut sashing strips (1" finished).
Next you cut the block in half horizontally and vertically.
Then you twist and turn the quarters to make a new block. It looks like you did a lot of piecing, but it was actually very easy. I've used up one charm pack already, which makes 4 blocks (16 quarters). I have another pack of the same fabric to make more blocks. Then I'll put them together to make a small quilt.
You can go here to see the video tutorial for this pattern.
