Magic Disappearing 9-patch

Many months ago, probably even more than a year actually, I did a demo for my local guild using a variation on the popular Disappearing 9-patch (D9P) block.  The Magic 9-patch (M9P) was a pattern I found online after searching blocks that would match the ‘slashed blocks’ theme of our meeting.  The pattern is by Lyn Brown, and can be found here.

For the demo I had blocks in various stages of completion to show the technique and then also a little flimsy of I think 6 blocks sewn together to give an idea of what the completed project would look like. Everything was cut out already at that point. I had enough cut for 25 blocks, which is what I used in this top. It was very quick at the time, I think I did it in an evening or two before the meeting. Of course I promised to complete it quickly after and bring it back so that everyone could see a whole quilt. Hmm. Does more than a year count as ‘quickly’?

I’m glad that at least the top is done now. It can be added to my growing stack of completed tops waiting to be quilted.

A new photo spot in my yard! It is getting harder to effectively use the fence behind the corn, as you’ll see shortly, and I don’t typically take pictures in the ash tree until they are completely done, so I had to search for an alternative. This is the wall beside my back deck. The mottled sunshine seems to work with this top.

Now you see it, and now you don’t! It’s great that the corn is doing so well, but my quilt hanging fence is a little obscured. It really is a Magic Disappearing 9-patch!
