How to make a .........

....... Disappearing 9-patch block
It really couldn't be simpler.  here is how:
1.     make a 9-patch
2.     cut it in half lengthways and widthways to give 4 smaller blocks
3.     arrange layout to suit!

      This is how I arranged the colours for my red 9-patch:  




      This is what it looked like after I had cut it into quarters.





      I made mine with a limited palette, but it could be totally scrappy, scrappy but with the same colour in the centre of every block, using just 3 colours, etc.
      This is a great block, with loads of potential, so just try it and have fun with it!

      7. Thanks for the directions. I love the idea of doing it scrappy with the same color center in all the blocks.

      9. I don't like a lot of these but this one looks really nice. Probably because I can see a distinct pattern.
