There are links to both disappearing nine patch and disappearing four patch tutorials on our Quick links to techniques and resources page, and to a double disappearing nine patch, that is just a bit fancier.
Julie brought in two quilts she made using the disappearing nine patch technique, but using different block layouts to achieve quite different overall designs from the 'standard' one. There are many other ways of placing the blocks to achieve different effects (just Google 'disappearing nine patch' images, and settle in for some net surfing). You can also see how using border fabrics of differing values changes the look of the quilts. Thank you for sharing your beautiful quilts, Julie.
