Happy to be part of Teresa Mairal Barreu of Sewn Up Patterns' book tour/ blog hop for her delightful new book Turnabout Patchwork After trying these techniques, you'll never look at a traditional block in the same way, ever again.

Double Disappearing Nine Patch Block - Cross
I started with 2 1/2 inch strips instead of the recommended 5 inches so I'm the crazy tiny piecing person. Since this pattern is a variation on the Disappearing 9 Patch block, I started off making 9 Patches. It takes two 9 Patches to create one Cross block and one supporting block.
Here I was playing with the fun design options with this pattern. There are several different ways to arrange the Cross blocks and the background block.
Black and white and pink are my go-to happy colors and you can't go wrong with polka dots, hearts, and stars! Check out Teresa's new book and join in the fun!!! & Remember to leave a comment here for your chance to win a digital copy of Turnabout Patchwork from Martingale.
Hop on to see what other quilt designers have created starting with a simple nine patch block, slicing it and rearranging it into different blocks and layouts - February 8th and scroll down further for the full blog hop.
