A Few Scraps: Double disappearing nine patch. The name kind of says it all! And depending how you orient your blocks in the second nine patch you could end up with completely different looks. If you start with 5 inch squares, you will use 7 inch squares for your second nine patch, and end up with a block that measures 1.
Have you tried this before? I decided to have a drawing for a fabric store gift certificate from among everyone who donated, as a thank you. If you have a block to send, please pop it in the mail this week. We are almost to 2.
Nine Patch quilt patterns have been around for hundreds of years. BLOCK Friday: Nine Patch Quilt Patterns. Let’s have a look at this quilt block.
Q: What is this quilt block's name?. It is beautiful, but I can't find the name of it anywhere. I have looked in books, on websites, asked quilter friends, including my Mom, and can't find it anywhere. My uncle had the top stored in a closet or somewhere since Grandma's death. So I'm hoping that this means as much to Mom as it means to me to be able to give it to her. It would really be cool to be able to tell her the name of the block also.
Your mom is so lucky to have you and I'm sure she will treasure this most heartfelt gift! The name of the quilt block is 'Glorified Nine Patch'.
You'll sometimes see it referred to as an 'Improved Nine Patch'. What's interesting about this block is that it is classified as an uneven 9 patch and then drawn on a 5x. This is the underlying structure of the patches. You can clearly see the uneven 9- patch.

And then the curved patches are added to finish the block. Those curves would be gentle enough to piece by machine.
If you wanted to have it go faster, then I'd probably use this invisible machine applique technique to add the curved sections. It's a fun quilt, and even better that it spans three generations! Thank you for your question and sharing your pictures. It was fabulous to see. Piecefully, Julie Baird. Editor. Other blocks you may enjoy: Just click on the image for the instructions.
