Here's my take on Jennifer's nine-patch:
I know most of you have made a nine patch before but Jen and I wanted to get back to the basics of quilting, to start with the easy blocks and move towards more complicated blocks.
I love the nine patch because it's simple to construct but it doesn't have to look simple once it's done. I love a fussy cut square in the center or the corners. Directional fabrics would change the look of this block as well as the arrangement of lights and darks. It's a fun challenge to think outside the box on this traditional block.
