Disappearing 4,9,16 and Many, Many Twist Turn Variations: Updated 2016


 


 I love making all of the various adaptations of the Disappearing Patch Quilts. The things you can create seem almost endless! This post is regularly updated on my primary blog but many people continue to come to this back up site instead.

So, I am updating it here, with this post. But in the future..it will continue to be updated at my primary blog at:

Disappearing 9 Patch Quilt by Michele Bilyeu of With Heart and Hands

 

With blogger having problems switching from Picasa to Google Photos, many of us are experiencing problems adding in photos right now. I'm just fortunate that I have so many photos saved and can continue to share with all of you as much as I can...Enjoy!

Double click to enlarge!










 Enlarge the photos of the sheets above and there is also a super cheat sheet for yardage etc!

as Jo says...you just keep making blocks until the quilt is big enough and then you choose how to border etc. it...
What fun!!
 Here's something else to look at another site:
D9P video & different layout\

And what about the Disappearing 16 Patch??


1.You just make 16 blocks in a variety of colors, cut it up diagonally in both directions 

2. Randomly selected two triangles and seam together..over and over again with sets...

3. And Magic happens!
And look at all the variations you can create!!!
