Twin Nine Patches
by Kathe Dougherty, Lawrence, Kansas 2010
Kathe took a package of Moda's 10" square Layer Cakes in the Arnold's Attic fabric collection and made this Nine-Patch Quilt.
The double nine-patch is made up of twin nine-patches. The twins are fraternal---not identical. They complement each other nicely to create a pattern in dark and light.
Fraternal twin sisters? about 1910
Terry Thompson and I collect pictures of twins.
Our rules: if they are dressed alike and rougly the same size they are twins.
The pattern is on the Moda Bake Shop, Moda's website that provides all sorts of online recipes you can use with Moda Pre-cuts. Check it out by clicking here:
Fraternal twin brothers and a big sister, about 1910
The blocks are Fraternal Twin A (lighter Nine-Patches in blues and greens) and Fraternal Twin B (darker Nine-Patches in oranges and browns). We were pleased to find you can get that contrast out of one Layer Cake Pre-Cut.
Bookmark that Moda Bakeshop. It's a great place for ideas and how-tos.
