Nine patch pillow

9 patch pillow

What do you think of my new pillow?? Well, it isn't really mine. My mom wanted a pillow to match her new quilt. Why turn down a fun new project?? This block is called a disappearing nine patch. I got the idea over at Sew Mama Sew's Quilt Month. This a variation of a nine patch, and even though it looks complex, it is really simple. It was fun to make and I now plan on making a whole quilt in this pattern. If you click on the picture it will send you over to flickr where you can see the back. (it's cute too!!)

Darling! Darling! Darling! I'm amazed at your work, Nicole. Do you do your own quilting? We need to get together and craft.
