9P Night Vision 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

I have a large collection of 9 patch blocks created by mixing up the corner four squares with different centre squares … and of course the squares in the middle of each side of the nine patch blocks.

The design above shows a quilt with nine patch blocks with the same corner squares in each block and the same centre squares, and the side squares left plain.

The two designs below have the same pattern in the centre of each side, and some of the designs created in this way are rather good, even if I do say so myself.

These are amongst the many I have been playing with since the night I woke up with a vision of blocks which formed patterns where the four corners come together.

However, those of you who have been following me for more than a couple of days will have noticed I do not like using the same block throughout a quilt top, but like to mix blocks up in just about every design.

The rest of the designs in this project file use blocks in which I have used have a variety of shapes in the squares in the centre of each side, but the corner and middle are the same in every block. I may share a few of my favourite blocks. The designs I shared yesterday had different centres, this project file will have the same centre and the same corner blocks in all designs, but with a variety of side patches.

I love the last one, though I think I would love it more if I had made the corner squares lighter for the secondary design formed where the blocks come together.

    I too love the last design. I am in awe at how your mind works and how many designs you create!


    • Cindy,

      Sometimes I would like my mind to slow down so I can keep up to all of the possibilities of each new idea. Instead, one new idea leads to many more and I think I forget half of them before I get to record them somewhere!
