More Black & White

I am on a black and white kick! I still have yards of black & white fabrics in my stash. The last quilt hardly seemed to make a dent in it (perhaps that's due to one or two a few several pieces jumping into my arms at the quilt store recently). I had so much fun making my first string quilt I thought I would make my first Disappearing Nine Patch! I'm totally into instant gratification right now so it's the perfect quilt to make.
I LOVE this!
all the squares cut
9 squares sewn together, then cut in half horizontally and vertically
turn the pieces one way and you get this
or you could make this
There are lots of ways to move the pieces around. I will probably switch out pieces from 4 different blocks so that there are 4 different greens in each. I will be using the layout of the first picture in this post.

The house is in order. All my errands are done. I have paired up some squares and am ready to start chain piecing tomorrow! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that nothing interrupts my perfectly planned day.


Happy Stitching!
Corina

Beautiful colours combination, lime green is one of the colours that I most love and I like it with black and white!

Ooh...how I love D9P - and that green is perfect with the B&W. I did one in that color a couple of years ago - used the pattern Once Around the Block, though! Hmmm....maybe time to do another D9P.

I think I'm going to have to start looking for black and white fabrics. Your string quilt came out so very pretty and this new DP9 is going to be too, I'm sure. Again the lime green gives it just the right pop of colour.

Great black and whites and the lime is just perfect. We did disappearing nine patch blocks in our guild for a comfort quilt given to one of our members. Everyone really enjoyed the technique.

Can't wait to see how you finally put the Disappearing 9 Patch together. You must be dreaming in black and white too :)
