Wintry Disappearing Nine Patch

Recently, I visited the Missouri Star Quilt Company in Hamilton, MO with a friend.  She had told me about all their great fabrics and live tutorials and what a place it was!!  While there, one of the workers demonstrated how to make a Disappearing Nine Patch.  It seemed fast and easy so I decided to give it a try.

While taking down Christmas decorations in one of our spare bedrooms, I decided just what color to make that quilt.  In the winter I decorate this room with red and white.  Since there is a wall shelf/quilt rack on the wall, I thought a red wall quilt would be something I could keep up from Christmas through Valentine's Day.




I finished the top last night and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! 



Now, it's time to quilt.

Isn't a fast and easy block. Made a couple of them so far. Great job.

Ooh! What a great idea! Love the colors and it is a happy quilt! Well done!

Perfect idea, to tie the decorations in to last a little longer. I am jealous you actually got to go to the Missouri Star Quilt CO...

I love this D9P. Your fabrics go so well together. I am looking forward to making a red quilt next month.

D9P blocks are so wonderfully versatile. I love them and your red/white combo is great!

Thanks so much for linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday and welcome to the party!
