It's my turn!

I decided that I wanted a scrappy quilt. I also decided that we should do something fun so we are going to do the Disappearing 9 Patch. Does everyone know how to do one? I put together a slide show to help you out. The important thing is finding the exact centre lines. I would appreciate that when you turn the blocks, please keep them similar to mine. My centre block was divided into 4 little ones, I left two i the centre area and turned the other miniblocks so what was the centre fabric was in the outside corners. Make sense? You should be able to view the slideshow here: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v11/YukonViv/2010/?action=view&current=5a929325.pbw
You will all be sent 9 charm squares...hows that for easy? I'm using the Moda charm pack called Wildflower Serenade by Kansas Troubles. Just lay it out in a pleasing manner to you and have fun sewing. These will be going out next week to you. Have fun! Vivian

  6. Yay, thanks. I forgot to mention that I sent 4 packages out late. why? b/c I didn't have any more envelopes and every time I remembered to stop at a shop in town to pick up more I was already pulling in my driveway (half an hour away from town). Linda, Tara and Shelly are for sure going to get their's late, and Linda yours also has your finished block in it. I forget who the 4th is but you'll know b/c it won't arrive till the end of the month. Oh well, suchislife! Take care, Viv

  7. Hi Vivian,
    I am not part of this year's bee but I hope to participate one day soon. I love this design. the disappearing 9 patch is so much fun to do . I had never heard of it and I had to try it once I watched that little video you posted about 20 times. I made 25 of them and plan to make a quilt top with them.

    I can not wait to see your finished quilt. I hope you post it once you finish it.
