Purple Baby Disappearing Nine Patch

 39 x 46

This is a simple disappearing nine patch in 3 fabrics. I had a bunch of the white floral print and it seemed perfect with the purple for a baby quilt. I think I have enough left to make another one! The blue print is placed in the center and the purple in the corners. Each square is cut 5" and sewn as a nine patch. Then you cut the block in half horizontally and vertically to form 4 new blocks.

I had so much fun quilting this baby quilt!  I like practicing new free motion quilting on baby quilts because they are small and if you make a mistake it's not such a big deal as if I did it on a large quilt. But there are no major mistakes this time, just some wonky looking leaves in a few places.

This pattern allows for continuous quilting across the quilt on the white fabric.  I did have to come back for the leaves because they had to be done separately. One more look just for fun!
