Disappearing 9 Patch anyone???

Over the last few months we have made a number of quilts using the pattern called the Disappearing 9 Patch (or D9P). In brief a D9P quilt starts with a large basic 9 patch. The individual squares of fabric in the D9P are all the same size, what ever it might be... 5.5 inch squares, 7 inch squares etc. The 9 patch block is sewn together then the magic happens>>>>

Check out these tutorial and inspirational
links on how to re-assemble the 9 patches. Confused? check these out...
