I don’t know if I’ve ever had more trouble photographing fabric than these four fabrics. Every light in my studio is on (cue country song), and it’s daytime, but I still can’t get a true picture. Take my word that these fabrics really do play nice together. The pink is a little on the strawberry side, but nowhere near as dark as it looks. My favorite blocks are the ones with the two tulip prints. This placement works, but I may move some things around, too. You’ll just have to stay tuned.
I’m using the Disappearing Four Patch technique (D4P), which I think is a lot prettier than the 9 patch. I’m sure there are lots of tutorials, but I learned it from Mama Vesuvius when she was collecting blocks for Hurricane Sandy quilts. Scroll down a little on that page, the tutorial is there. These are the 12 1/2″ blocks she is showing.
I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

How beautiful and I love the pattern you did! What technique did you use for the disappearing nine patch? Is there a specific tutorial for this pattern? I love it!

I know what you mean about the photographing – it happens to me way too often. Love the fabric and the design you’ve come up with. I do look forward to seeing more.
