Disappearing Nine Patch

As I wrote a few days ago I had to have a go at this. It is really easy. You start with a nine patch block - either a scrappy one like mine or a more co-ordinated one.

The finished block needs to be a reasonable size (probably at least 10.5 inches) or it gets too fiddly. You cut the block in half horizontally and vertically so you have 4 pieces.

Then you rearrange this four patch in another way - there are several different ways you can do it.

Here is my finished quilt. I plan to give this away, along with others that my friendship group intends to make.
