I love a surprise! A Disappearing Nine Patch quilt offers just that. The surprise comes when you cut up basic nine patch blocks into four equal pieces and then twist and turn those smaller blocks to create a more interesting quilt top. It's a quick and easy quilt to make, perfect for a baby quilt. Here's the quilt top I put together in just a few hours, using Jennifer's great tutorial.
The fabric itself, called Happy by Me & My Sister Designs , was a surprise gift from The Old Country Store in the Lancaster county village of Intercourse, PA. The Old Country Store was chosen as one of the 10 best quilt shops in the US by Quilt Sampler magazine and houses a quilt museum on the second floor of their historic building. Their Online Fabric shop is well stocked and the prices are very competitive.
I'm adding the Old Country Store to my online shopping mall! The nice folks at the store sent along a little something for you too.........so check back tomorrow for the scoop.
