DNP, Giveaway & Award

I finished sewing nine patches for the second charity quilt made using the Disappearing Nine Patch pattern (DNP). There are endless possibilities with this pattern depending on how many different fabrics are used, where they are positioned in the block, and how the segments are sewn back together. I chose to keep the four corners the same and the center square the same for my twelve blocks. I cut the squares at 4 1/2" - 48 of the focus fabric and 12 of each of the other five. The cutting, sewing, pressing and re-cutting goes very quickly. I will wait for another day to sew the blocks together. For now, I'm just happy to have something usable from these fabrics.

I tried to add this on my sidebar, but it gets cut off. Since I'm not that techno minded to know how to reduce the size of it, I am putting it in my post. This is a very bright and happy looking quilt. It could be yours if you leave a comment on Dana's blog.

Kudos to another quilter who was bitten by the disappearing 9 patch bug. I made two last week.

Where'd you get the DNP pattern, Jeanne? BTW I checked with Judy L. and she said prints would be OK; I'm sure it would look different from hers though. (She also told me that she prefers tone on tone for most of her quilts.) I've printed out the info so far but like you haven't decided, and also like you I don't want to buy fabric.....we'll see!
