Disappearing Nine Patch Class

I am a member of the Port Curtis Patchwork Class. I voluntered to teach the members the Disappearing nine patch quilt technique. What a fun day it was. IT was amazing to watch the different combinations of the quilt appearing. Check out the photos of some of the quilts in progress. Its amazing how different they all look when they are made the same way.

This one is going to be amazing in red white and black. The middle square of the nine patch block was the red colour. The four corners of the block were the black with white print and the others were white with black print. Very effective hey!

This one is made using 3 different fabrics...

This one was made using the same background colour throughout and scrappy blue squares.

Doesnt the black squares on this one come to life! It was amazing watching this one grow. It will look amazing when finished.

This next one is going to be totally different again. This lady had two lovely turtle prints she wanted to incorporate into a quilt. YOu can see how we ended up placing her fabrics into the nine patch block (before cutting). The effect is going to be a stripey quilt! As the blocks come together the print fabrics are going to form a stripe accross the quilt and doesnt that aqua blue fabric just look like water!
The following are some of the other quilts the ladies have started on.

Hi KA,
Looks like you had a wonderful class - so productive. Must have been the teacher... Isn't it great to see so much variety from one block?

WOW - what a fantastic range of colours used on those quilts. They all look wonderful - must have been a very successful workshop.
Hope it is ok if I link from the tutorial on my blog to this page to give other ideas :)

I see you are also a Bonnie Hunter quilter, & a friend of Khris. Khris & Glen stayed with us in Phx.AZ when they were in the USA in 2008. I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for examples of D9P quilts to show a friend!
