Cool 9 Patch

Some of the ladies from LBCQ went to the guild meeting this week. They came back with a lot of stories and a new-to-us pattern. You start with a simple 9 patch. This one has 6" squares.

You then cut the nine patch into quarters and re-piece in any way you wish.

There are lots of pattern possibilities. It was suggested that it might be best if all your 9 patches had the same centre square before you cut them. It would provide continuity to the quilt.
