Layer Cake Quilt Along - Block Eight

Can't believe we're on Block 8 of the Layer Cake Quilt Along already. This one was quick and easy. It's the disappearing 9-patch design, so there are several different ways it can be done. I chose to use three fabrics in two colors and arrange the 9-patch quarters in a way that would create a sort of pinwheel in the middle. Take a look...

Layer Cake Quilt Along - Block EightCan you tell which fabric was the middle square of the 9-patch before it was cut into quarters?

Layer Cake Quilt Along - Block EightYep, it was the swirly blue fabric! This is such a fun and versatile quilt block, one that I have made for two different swaps. The first was a block swap back in 2009, and the second was the red and aqua block swap I was part of a few months later. I have used the blocks from the first swap already in this scrappy quilt that I donated to our local CareNet, but I have yet to lay out and sew up the red and aqua blocks. That will be a project for another time!

Happy Stitching!
