It's a take on the traditional 9-patch block. Some call it the double-disappearing 9-patch. I call it inspired by the 9-patch:
My first double-disappearing 9-patch was quickly put together for a quilt guild program a few months back. I knew the room would be filled with traditional quilters, so I thought the multitude of scraps used in this one gave it a more traditional look.
as did the traditional quilt design.
I was hooked on love after the very first double disappearing 9-patch. I moved from my scrap bin to the black and white in my fabric stash. Added just a smidge of red to jazz it up a bit. First the more traditional layout:
and since I had plenty of black and white, I put one together with a modern flair. Oh, the fun of having no fabric placement rules to follow allowed all different size squares and rectangles that just made this one sing out loud.
When I won a great little charm pack there was just nothing left to do but add more fabric to complete this one.
It's so bright and cheery and I smile every time I see this modern paisley quilting.
and then I ran out of white background fabric and also out of cream background fabric
so, what's left to do but to fill in with light gray
this one is now my favorite and is in the
hands of my favorite quilter
who works magic in the modern
