What are you most proud of? 21 young women (friends of the grads) kept a 4 month long secret: they were making quilts! They stitched 1/4" seams, put together nine patches, cut them in half and restitched the blocks. Weeeeo! Go to my quilting blog and see the ticker tape pillows they made that match each quilt. http://FabricFulfillingItsDestiny.blogspot.com

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Missouri Star Quilt Company has a great free video tutorial on the DNP (Disappearing Nine Patch) block. Google DNP for many more tuts on this very easy block.

Thank you! The teens went through my stash and picked the colors for each of their friends quilt (to fit their personalities and interests). And the DNP is all straight seams so it is excellent for beginners.
