Disappearing 9 Patch

I started not one, not two, but THREE Quilts today!!
The kids will be leaving their school at the end of term 3 so I have 15 days to whip up 5 teachers gifts!! Using the last of my Summer in the City Charm Squares, I sewed together four 9 patch squares and I have cut them up ready to be re positioned and sewn back together. This will be a simple quilt, with the D9P as the centre then a small orange sashing and a wide border.I also cut up a heap of 3" purple strips to make a purple toned Bento Box Quilt, and I am going to make Bec's 9 Patch using my Tula Pink Nest fabrics.
So, I am away for the weekend, off to Fairbridge for a quilting retreat that's been organised by my mum, all of my cousins will be there so hopefully I will be able to get some serious sewing in!
