doll quilt challenge

The other day I was just blogging around when I discovered a doll quilt challenge group on Flickr. After reading the theme of challenge for the month June I got real enthusiastic ( I just love making nine patch). So I joined the group and start working on the doll quilt right away.



June challenge: "the disappearing nine patch"
It's a real simple pattern. Start with making a big square out of nine equal sized little squares. Then cut through the big square both vertically and horizontally so you end up with four equal sized squares. Rearrange these four squares to make a different pattern. Make as many blocks as needed.
There are many various patterns possible, that's what makes it so fun.
The colors I used are very, very (candy) sweet. But I quess because it's a dollquilt it doesn't matter.

This will not have effect in fact, that's exactly what I suppose.
