Glorified Modern Nine Patch

Glorified Modern Nine Patch with Cheryl Taylor

Pattern by Gyleen Fitzgerald of Colorful Stitches

Description:  Illusion at its best! But how do you get those curves? With straight lines of course. Go figure but it’s just that simple. You take two relatively high contrasting colors, you alternate two pieced “quilter friendly” blocks then float segments into the border and just like that you’re done! You will learn how to make pointy triangle segments with the Tri-Recs tool and how to artfully transition and color blend from one block to the next.

Supply List

Five  - 18” x 22” assorted feature fabrics

One – 4 ½” x 22” accent fabric

1 yard of light background fabric

1 yard of medium background fabric

½ yard for binding

3 yards for backing

  •       Suggestion for Fabric selection: use five fabrics that compliment each other and one fabric that ‘pops’ with the others for the accent fabric. Select a light background fabric with works well with your feature fabrics and provides contrast. The medium background fabric can be a darker hue of the light background fabric.

Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details:
Instructor: Cheryl Taylor
Instructor Bio: Cheryl Taylor loves to make quilts, along with a variety of other fabric projects; think .. storage containers, bottle bags, microwave bowls, and beds for pets to sleep and cuddle in. But her favorite activity is sharing easy techniques with others - some are ones she's improved upon from traditional techniques; other techniques she had streamlined so the process is easier to execute. Sharing the skills she has learned with others has always been important to her. As an instructor, she encourages students to conquer their fears and jump right into the process. Her primary area of expertise is designing and making T-shirt and/or clothing quilts. She has lots of suggestions for simplifying this sometimes-overwhelming task. But she also shares several quilt or project-making techniques designed to help simplify the quilt or project making processes. Examples include easy curved piecing, no-stress zippers, cutting techniques for Stack n' Whack and One Block Wonder quilt designs, and no-paper-tearing Foundation Paper Piecing.
