modernized d9p quilt blocks

I am so excited for April! Next month I will have my first turn as quilter for the WISH circle of do. Good Stitches. Ever since I found out I was going to be a quilter, I've been searching for the perfect quilt blocks and the perfect color scheme to make the perfect quilt. I've changed my mind about a thousand times so I'm just going to go ahead and post my idea now so I can't change it again!

I've decided on a fairly straightforward quilt design for my first month. We'll be making this Modernized Disappearing 9 Patch from Kristy at St. Louis Folk Victorian. Now for the color combination. I've been perusing all the beautiful possibilities at Design Seeds and finally chose this pretty combination of white, aqua, red and dark brown.

Everyone will make 2 quilt blocks and each quilt block will use 4 colored/print charm squares and 5 white charm squares.

Sew your 9 patch blocks using any two of the layouts provided in the tutorial.

Cut each 9 patch block into quarters.

Mix up your blocks and sew them back together however you like!
