Fractured Disappearing 9-Patch Quilt
Project sizes: 48" x 48" or 60" x 60"
This quilt is a modern take on a classic design. The familiar 9 Patch block will become a thoroughly modern design.
Students will prepare and bring several “base” Nine-Patch blocks with them to the class. During the workshop, we will use improvisational cutting and piecing to ‘fracture’ each of the blocks.
This is an improvisational piecing project that will give you lots of opportunity to play and have fun!! I call this improvisational process “fracturing” the block because I use a series of straight cuts to slice apart a pieced block and then sew it back together. Eventually the original nine patch design disappears and an improvisational patch block is what's left.
This project can be made in any combination of fabrics: bold focus prints; ombres; African prints; modern prints paired with neutral backgrounds and coordinating solids or near-solids. You can also make a patriotic prints version!
