Disappearing 9 Patch

I keep seeing all of these Disappearing 9 Patch quilts and I love them.  I took yesterday and today off work and I found 26 9 patch blocks that I had won or made on one of the groups a few years ago.  I have to say that they were not really that pretty and some had very very thin fabric but I thought they would be perfect to make a throw for winter and get some practice.  Here they are cut up and some have been sewn.
The following shots are the top done and I haven't even pressed it yet.  So this is what you can do with some not so pretty 9 patch blocks and turn it into a BEAUTY!!!
I did not try to come up with any special design when putting them together.  This is going to be used to cover up with on the sofa this winter and I'm thinking of putting fleece on the back for extra warmth.
I would recommend that you try this and here is a link where I got my instructions.

Have a great day/evening and I hope to finish this over the week-end and I'll let you see.
