Introduction to Disappearing Nine Patch with Wendy Gardiner - 19th May 2023

Disappearing Nine-Patch

This design looks like a lot of hard work, but really it is deceptively simple!

Patchwork and quilting are all about perfectly cut fabric pieces and perfect stitching. Try your hand at this simple patchwork technique that looks far more complicated than it is, so produces ‘wow’ factor results! You will use a rotary cutter/ruler and mat, quarter-inch foot and learn how to match seams perfectly. With a bit of clever cutting and twisting, you will turn a simple nine-patch block into a disappearing nine-patch! You can either make one block and turn it into a cushion cover or bag or do a few as the start of a quilt.


Disappearing Nine Patch

  • 3 coordinating fat quarters for the main bag
  • Rotary cutter/mat and acrylic ruler (we can loan these)

For a cushion Cover

40 x 90cm of fabric for the front and back of the cushion

1m x 40cm of wadding

Advanced Preparation

  1. From each of the three co-ordinating fabrics, cut 6 squares of 15 cm (so you will have 18 in total)
