– pre-cut squares or the equivalent in scrap fabric you cut to size – Neutral toned Jelly Roll Strips – Additional neutral fabric for the border – Larger pieces of fabric for the backing
My Nine Patch Blocks
The disappearing 9 patch blocks themselves are not so much scrappy, I had some 5" pre-cuts that I bought in a sale in the throws of ‘stash building’ when I first started quilting.
SCRAPPY SASHING & BORDERS
I didn’t have enough of these blocks to make a good sized quilt, so I needed to add some sashing and borders….this is where the neutral scraps come in.
QUILT BASTING – WATER & PINS
A reader suggested that I try spraying my quilt top with water and then ironing it down on to the batting as a basting technique.
PIECED QUILT BACK
For the back of my disappearing 9 patch quilt I used one larger piece of teal fabric and three other pink pieces I had leftover from other projects.
Because of some of the shapes in the patterned fabric I decided to do an all over quilting design that was a bit of a 'leafy' or 'floral' look.
Given I haven’t actually done that much free motion quilting before I think it turned out okay and it was a pretty forgiving design to choose too!
