Disappearing 9 Patch Bag

After seeing the Disappearing 9 Patch Tutorial on Helen blogs, I decided that I wanted to give it a try and see how it turned out. I didn't want to start a new quilt so needed a small project that would be quick and easy. A simple bag, using scraps would be perfect. I had a few squares from our guild challenge that I am not using on the challenge project, and I always have a few other batiks in my scrap pile. I was a little worried about the how the colours would work together. It sure looks better together than it did part way through. I just did 4 blocks on each side of the bag, and black for the handles, sides and bottom. This went together quite quickly and I am quite happy with how it turned out.

The colours look great together, and what a good way of using up extra blocks and trying out a new tutorial.

Great bag ! And well done for NOT starting a new quilt. Some of us have more control than others -lol.

It is nice sometimes to make something quick and fun that you can finish in a day. The bag looks great. Great colours!

Great bag and it seems a quick project too. The colors go together well, I think. Thanks for sharing. Take care.

Absolutely GORGEOUS!! I think it has worked particularly well because you kept the middle squares black, and the darker fabrics in the X of the 9patch. The black fabric for the structure of the bag really sets those fabrics off perfectly :)

I saw that tutorial and throught it was a great idea to try out sometime. That was a smart idea to use up orphan blocks to made a super bag.
