More Than Half Way There

I found a tutorial for a fast quilt on a blog called Life is a Stitch. I have tried to add a link but for the life of me can't remember how to get it in the body of the post.

I am thinking about quick Christmas gifts but wanted to give it a try to see how it went and how it looked made up. She doesn't call it that, but I believe this is the Disappearing Nine Patch block. Just to make sure that there is NO copyright problem here.........I have no idea who wrote the book on this but I acknowledge that there is someone out there!

This is my first STASH quilt too. My "stash" doesn't have a lot of yardage. It's more odds and ends, pieces added from here and there. I love scrap quilts and applique so I buy a lot of remnants. So, this is the first quilt that I could put together on the spot without a trip to buy something. My great white hunter will be SO impressed! I think this is going on the daybed in the sewing/guest bedroom. It really needs a new bedspread and shams but I haven't been able to find anything that I liked well enough to pay over a hundred dollars for. Now if I can find a white twin bed bed skirt somewhere!

Here is what the first set of 9 patch blocks looks like once it is cut, sewn and then sewn together. I wasn't sure if there would be too much white but I am really pleased with the look I got.

Here are the pinned 9 patch units that will be cut in half both ways after they are sewn.

Oh this looks so neat. I've been thinking about something simple but a little different. Looking forward to the link.

I found your post via Nancy's website. She had me over the other night and we each put together a charity quilt top from this pattern.
