Split nine patch quilt: SQUARES

Last year I made lots of charity quiltsf or prison babies which had to be 36" square. I was very fascinated by the methods in Nancy Brenan Daniel's book "Slice'em Dice'em quilts" and adopted four of the techniques and resized her instructions to produce the required dimensions and also worked out how to use picture squares and directional prints in the ninepatch units.
The ninepatch above clearly shows how the pictures need to be set in the ninepatch in order to be the right way up when the ninepatch is cut in half and turned around.
