I love this look

Nnot having completed a quilt, I like simple rather then complicated. In other words nine patch is the way to go for me.

I like the nine patch because you can change it up so easily with variations of one color or multicolored and its an easy and quick quilt to start with.

What fun! A quick quilt for a gift!

Who doesn't love a nine patch?

I love them both but a D9P can be wonderful.

My favorite for fast, easy and very effective. Love the nine patch and can not wait to try some of your examples here. Oh so much summer fun sewing

Thank you for this nice giveaway - I prefer the disappearing nine patch.

I'm used to traditional, but the variety and imagination in the disappearing 9-patch quilts is winning me over.

I like the disappearing nine patch

I love the look of the disappearing nine patch quilts!

I made the Magically Self Sashing Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt and loved the disappearing part. However, if it were't for the nine would we have a disappearing nine patch?

Talk about timing! I've been going charm pack crazy and these collections are just what I need to get charm pack quilt sewing. Lots of great ideas and designs some old some new, some new twists on tried and true. Along with ideas for non quilt projects, gotta love it!

I have never made a blanket or quilt of any kind before (this excludes crochet blankets I have done, but that was a LONG time ago!) using a sewing machine and I am excited to try it!!! This looks like an awesome set of patterns!!

I'll be making my first quilt over the next couple of months and I can't wait to use this design-)

The traditional nine patch is my favorite. So easy to make and use scraps.

do love looking at the different patterns, some I have tried and some I just say no to (to hard) I think I enjoy the disappearing 16 block. It was fun and exciting, no matter how you sew it it looked good. Thanks

As a beginner quilter, I would love to make this quilt. It is so beautiful ... I wouldn't want to hide it in my bedroom! This will be my first nine patch quilt . . .

The Nine Patch is an "easy to the eye" quilt that has an understated elegance beginning quilters and experts love.This is the first quilt we all started with.A timeless treasure.

I love the disappearing nine patch the best, love to mix it up!

The traditional nine patch is my favorite, but the disappearing nine patch is pretty, too.

Disappearing nine patch!

This is nothing but an advertising website. Very disappointed!!

Some great ideas which seem very easy to complete and can be completed from your stash.
