Disappearing Nine Patch





"Beware the Jabberwock my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!"

~Jabberwocky, Lewis Carroll









Gone!




OK, so what really happens is that you take your boring nine patch squares:



and whack them into fourths like this:


and then turn them however you like:





And then sew them back together. I was a little boggled by my lack of squares after reassembly until I remembered that I was turning blocks of nine into blocks of four. Duh.

Thomas - Thanks. :)

Tshsmom - I'm having lots of fun with these - just started a mini one for Prawnie for her Bday or Christmas.

Tori - you wouldn't believe how long it took me to figure out the name of the quilt so I could look it up.

SM - she has talent! :)

Logo - OMG, ditto! :-P

TG - LOL! We sang it one year in choir, so bits of it are stuck in my head in rousing musical style. ^_^
