Disappearing Nine Patch Quilts

It has been a very busy month!  One of the quilts that I pieced was called "Just for You" a name I give to some quilts that are being donated to various charities.  I have enjoyed using the Disappearing Nine Patch to make these quilts.  You will notice that I went outside of the box for my border.  This quilt won a blue ribbon at our County Fair.  There is a program that our fair director has used for the past 2 years.  It is called "Help Make a Child Smile".  The quilts are judged but then they are given to our local hospital to disperse as needed.  It is a great way to share your quilting talents.

I just finished the next Disappearing Nine Patch this week.  I used leftover squares from the first Disappearing Nine Patch and changed the borders.  I really am having a good time with this pattern.  I learned this technique on the Missouri Star Quilt website.  A great place to go to learn fast and fun techniques. 

I cut out more 5" squares this morning to make a quilt for a little girl.  Yes Tristin, I am starting on your Bug quilt.

Enjoy the journey!
