I'm stuck.

I'm stuck on the disappearing 4 patch.
Totally stuck!

Maybe if I make a few more blocks I'll run out of steam...

But I don't know.
This block sure gotta hold of me!!!
Didn't it???

I used some flannels this time.
Pretty, huh?


I used 6" oops! 8 1/2" squares to make my D4Patches.
It only took FOUR blocks to make the quilt!!!
Then I used a 3" border...and a 5" border on the outside!

42"x42"

Today I hope to make some more wonky D4Patches
hoping my wonky quilt will grow to be
TWIN size!!!

  3. Thanks for sharing what's captured your attention. So many possibilities! Love seeing these. They're inspiration for making children's quilts for missions.

  5. I googled it, and also found a disappearing 4 Patch Pinwheel block. I tried a few and they are fun, so nice to get pinwheels w/o sewing triangles!

  9. I'd say this would be a great place to be stuck as they look great! I'm in need of a quick baby quilt so yeah, maybe I'll get stuck with you.
    I did receive your little house block and will play along; hopefully soon. I have figured out which fabrics to use, so... Thanks.-)

  13. LOVE your quilts. I'm going to have to figure out the disappearing 4 and 9 patch quilts. I've been seeing them everywhere. Yours are beautiful.

    Whoop-Whoop!

  14. I'm loving these blocks. I'm going home today and try this out. I"ll let you know my progress later. I've had these 9 Patches for awhile and couldn't decide what to do with them. This looks like fun!

  15. Love those blocks! I like any "disappearing" block, because it's so easy to make the original block, then cut and sew it back and have something entirely different. I don't blame you for being hooked on them!

  16. I love the disappearing nine patch too! This is the first time I have seen it in just two colors. I love how they turned out!

  17. I was pondering making these last night, first I have to do my other ideas though--such is quilting.

    Anyway great job;)

  19. I have made my fair share of the D9 Patch, so I know exactly why you are addicted to them. I love the stripes!
