I just had to make this. Do I need a baby quilt? Nope. It will go into inventory (aka laundry basket filled with quilts awaiting a home). So what makes this a modern disappearing 9 patch? The whole idea is that you replace one of the prints you would typically use in a 9 patch with more of the solid. In this case, white. Then you get this interesting addition of more negative space and we all know that negative space is a big deal in modern quilting. Looks pretty cool. At least, I think so. I was really tempted to bind this little quilt in white to really capitalize on the negative space but I totally chickened out and went with the palest of pinks. I think it is Kona Baby Pink. The quilt is backed with a pink and white Oxford striped flannelette. So pretty. And quilted in a simple grid with Aurifil 50 wt in white. I am very pleased with the fresh simplicity of this quilt.
I had to use my very pretty Kate Spain clothes pins for this one!
