The disappearing 9 patch blocks themselves are not so much scrappy, I had some 5″ pre-cuts which is what I used for these blocks.
I didn’t have enough of these blocks to make a good-sized quilt, so I needed to add some sashing and borders. This is where the scraps come in.
I had a few different ‘neutral’ toned fabrics, kind of off-white colours, some with a light beige pattern on, but none of them were enough to use for the whole of the front of the quilt.
It was a pain to do, but the combination of the two methods definitely worked better for me than spray basting.
