100th Post Give-Away

Today's post is a milestone for me and Lollyquiltz...........number 100! I've enjoyed the last nine months of blogging tremendously and have made some very nice invisible friends....some have even become real flesh and blood quilting friends! To celebrate, I've got a Fat Quarter Fabric Pack, donated by OldCountryStoreFabrics.com , to give away.
 I used a Fat Quarter Pack just like this to make this Disappearlng Nine Patch quilt top. The Pack contains eight fat quarters of Moda's Happy, by Me and My Sister Designs. I added 1/3 yard of black and white polka dots as the 9th fabric in the nine patch blocks. (It was the center square, in case you are interested....why didn't I take a picture before I cut it up?!)
For a chance to win the Happy Fat Quarter Fabric Pack, leave a comment telling me if you have made a disappearing nine patch quilt. Become a follower (and tell me in a separate comment) for a second chance to win. The winner will be chosen on Monday, December 13. Be sure that your email address is listed on your profile so that I can contact you if you win.  Happy # 100!!

  1. I have made a nine patch quilt. It was a baby quilt and also had a polkadot. I didn't really understand the concept of the nine patchfor that one. I made another later for a baby girl that turned out much better.

  11. I made a disappearing nine patch baby quilt earlier this year from Moda's "Love U" line. It was auctioned at one of my SIL's charity organizations. Such an easy pattern and the results are just beautiful. I like to make this pattern with all the centers of the nine-patches the same... it lends a little continuity to what could become a little crazy :)

    Love yours with the polka dots - who doesn't love polka dots??

  27. I've never made a 9-patch quilt, but would love to try. It seems so easy. I was hoping to make a 9-patch table runner for Christmas for my sister-in-law, maybe I'll still be able to finish that.
