What Can You Do
With Nine Patch Blocks
If You Offset Them?
If the Nine Patch units are 3" x 3", finished size, then this is an 11" x 11" block.
If the Nine Patch units are 9" x 9", finished size, then this is a 33" x 33" table topper.
What if I color each Nine Patch a different color but in sequence from magenta to dusty blue?
I get some interesting negative shapes and the circles disappear.
The colors are richer.
I've only just started, there is a lot more I could do, but I'm going to stop here because the title of this blog is "What can you do?" I want to see what you can do. What would you try next? What would you change? Do you have a better idea for using offset Nine Patch blocks than making circles?
