What a fun and versatile quilt block! It is basically nine squares sewn together and then “sliced” into four equal parts to create a disappearing design. The “sliced” blocks are rearranged and sewn back together with your creativity. You will learn to measure, cut with a rotary cutter, arrange squares, sew, press, cut and assemble the disappearing 9 patch. You can make one block as a candle mat or several for a table topper
Fabric, you can choose nine different fabrics with assorted colors and patterns or a selection of cool, warm or natural colors, the possibilities are endless. Four different fabrics make a striking block. 1/8 to ¼ yard will be plenty for the squares.
1/2 yard fabric for backing
40” x 18” quilt batting if doing the table runner
All purpose thread to match top of fabric
Sewing Machine (Must have basic working knowledge on machine)
Rotary Cutter and ruler
Thread, Scissors, Pins and general sewing supplies
Prior to class: Prepare your fabric. It is the sewer’s preference as to washing or not. If you choose to wash, it helps to have less fraying by using “pinking” shears to cut the edges of your fabric before washing. Fabric should be ironed/presses before class.
