Disappearing 16 Patch Block

By:

You've heard of a disappearing 9 patch quilt, but have you seen a Disappearing 16 Patch Block? It uses the same logic behind a magic nine patch quilt to create colorful quilt blocks that look like they're full of diamonds. Cutting the original 16 patch into quarter triangles and then joining two triangles together for each square creates a block with an on-point 4 patch in the center. Disappearing nine patch quilt patterns are the best ways for more experienced quilters to start working on variations of more traditional quilt blocks.
