Free Modern Patchwork Quilt Pattern: Nine Patch Rearranged

11 Apr 2012

Whenever I visit my local quilt shop, I delight in the displays of fresh new fabrics, all cut and folded in beautiful and unique ways. Jelly rolls? I have them at the ready for strip quilting and quick patchwork projects. Fat quarters? They are tucked into baskets in my studio.

how to make a patchwork quilt

'Nine Patch Rearranged' by Vivika Hansen DeNegre

But what about the 10" squares from Moda's Layer Cake packs? I used one package for this modern patchwork quilt, featured in our new special issue, Modern Patchwork: 37 Contemporary Projects to Make Now.

The blocks for this handmade patchwork quilt are made using a really fun and simple piecing technique. Starting with 10" squares I made huge nine-patch blocks, each with a solid pink center square. Then I cut each nine patch into quarters.

The resulting blocks were rearranged into a 4 x 5 grid and sewn together to make the quilt top, hence the title "Nine-Patch Rearranged."

I learned this technique for how to make a patchwork quilt from a quilting friend, using much smaller nine patches. I have heard it referred to as "Disappearing Nine Patch" and "Split Nine Patch."

Nine Patch Rearranged

Materials

Finished size 57" x 71" 

  • Coordinating print fabrics, 40 squares 10" x 10"
  • Solid fabric, 5 squares 10" x 10" (I used 3/4 yd. of a bright pink solid.)
  • Backing fabric, 3-3/4 yds.
  • Binding fabric, 3/4 yd.
  • Batting, 62" x 76" (or twin size)

Directions

1. For the first over-sized nine-patch block, select (9) 10" squares (you'll need 8 print squares and 1 solid square). On a design wall or other flat surface, arrange the squares into 3 rows of 3, with the solid square in the middle.

Tip: Place the fabrics you want to dominate your quilt in the 4 corner positions, and those that will be less dominant in the middle row positions.

2. To piece the over-sized nine-patch block, first sew the squares into 3 rows. Press the seams to 1 side, pressing in the opposite direction for the center row. Sew the 3 rows together. Press these seams toward the center, then press the block and set it aside.

3. Repeat the process, making a total of 5 blocks.

4. Cut the blocks into quarters by cutting in half from top to bottom, then side to side.

quilt project.
Tip: Because of the large size of the nine-patch blocks, it is easiest to locate the center by measuring 4-3/4" from the side seams of the middle row.

5. Using a design wall, arrange the blocks into 5 rows of 4 blocks each. Play with the placement of the colors, and rearrange the blocks to your heart's content.

6. Sew the rows, pressing the seams in opposite directions, and then sew the rows together, nesting the seams for matching corners. Press the entire quilt top.

7. To prepare the backing, cut the backing fabric in half from selvedge to selvedge to get 2 pieces approximately 67" x WOF (width of fabric). Sew these pieces together along a 67" edge.

8. Layer the quilt top with the batting and backing. Quilt and bind as desired. The featured quilt was quilted with an overall spiral design by the talented Saima Davis.

Working on this quilt was so much fun. But I'm already prioritizing my list of the other contemporary patchwork projects I plan to make from issues of Modern Patchwork. It's a long one!

I've always been a BIG fan of Amish quilts and I feel like the Modern Quilting trend has taken this wonderful art form and expanded it to a new plane.  I am also a fan of wonky piecing and so combine the two and I'm in love!

How refreshing! I am really enjoying the direction the magazine is now going. We, as quilters, always want to hear about new fabric processes. Thanks for keeping the crafty paper stuff in your other publications!

I have to confess that it seemed goofy to me to imply that what looks like simple contemporary quilts was something "new." But, as I look around the room at my local quilt guild meetings, the average member is in their late 40's to early 60's. It is not a "hip" crowd by any stretch of the imagination...

If calling the quilts "modern" and having a separate Guild system attracts young(er) stitchers to the fold, then bring it on! I want the art of quilting to continue to flourish long after I'm gone.

I have been making the "Nine Patch Rearranged" for some time --- under the name of "Disappearing Nine Patch".  I like to use it on baby or youth quilts -- using a child-oriented print for the non-cut block.

I'm fairly new to quilting and love the colors and designs. Never been one for fussy 'stuff.' And the colors are candy for the eyes. What a wonderful time to get a start with quilting. I love the old stuff, but my heart is with the more modern. So alive.

I've been having fun experimenting with precut pieces.  I've also become a fan of large blocks that when the quilt is finished looks much more complicated than the large blocks give it credit for.  Would love the chance to use this layer cake in the disappearing nine patch pattern really exciting. It will allow my penchant for large wild graphical prints and patterns to find their day in the sun.

I am more of a traditional quilter working in the small quilt size (mostly doll quilts). I like this pattern and will consider doing it in scrappy civil war repros.  The smaller size finishes quickly and you can see if the fabric choices will work in a larger size before spending all the time to create a full size quilt -- sometimes a lap quilt works for this as well.

I started quilting a little over a year ago and one of the first quilts I made was a disappearing 9 patch from 2 charm packs.  I put them together with 2" black sashing and patchy cornerstones that look like jewels.  I was amazed how beautiful that quilt turned out. I have wanted to try a layer cake to make a quilt so it would be great if I happen to be one of the winners.

Online a while back, I read about someone who takes this a step further. She takes the 9-patch cut into quarters and then creates another 9-patch block. (I used solid squares to fill in the quarters.) She then cuts those into quarters and sews the blocks together. Adds another level of "complexity" to the look but not to the sewing.

(And more fabric would be a welcome addition to my household!)

This pattern is one that would be good for a young novice quilter in my family. I love it myself as it could be a great scrap quilt too.

What a unique idea! I have promised to teach my 13 year old niece to quilt this summer after school is out and this looks like an excellent beginner's project. It will be interesting and fun to see which fabrics she chooses when I take her on our shopping trip to our local quilt shop, The Quilters Loft in Mooresville, NC. Thanks for the inspiration!

this also works well with solids in all the positions except the center one in the nine patch and a stripe or dot in that center position. for a scrappy look, use a mix of colors. for a more coordinated look, use two colors in each nine patch.

I made something similar to this but I used 5 inch charm squares.  It was fun.  I don't usually buy layer cake bundles but now I guess I will!

I really enjoy learning new things and passing it along to others. This is not new to me but the way it was explained was. It was a lot easier to follow thanks. I am going to make another one using these instructions.

I've done the disappearing four-patch, which I love, but not the nine. Have also used the charm pack and jelly rolls - but not the layer cake. Would love to try both. Thanks for the opportunity. Jan sewwhat46 at yahoo dot com

Thanks thanks thanks for reposting this! I have been wanting to make a quilt using this pattern but FB lost the posting I had saved. This will be my go-to quilt, I can already tell. Love me some 9-patch Rearranged!!

What a quick easy way to go. I've always wondered what to do with the beautiful layer cakes when I see them at my quilt store ... now I have an idea. I'd like to try this with fabrics with low color contrast - I'll bet the would look great!

I've never used a layer cake bundle - would so love to win this for my first time!
