Nine Patch Block - the simpler & faster way to do

I would like to dedicate these snapshots to all quilting newbies. Nine Patch is the most basic patchwork block, perfect for newbies. In these snapshots, you will learn to do Nine Patch the simpler & faster way. Enjoy !

(1) cut 3 strips each from 2 printed fabrics & sew them together alternately (sample measurement : 2.5" strip, min length is 15", depends on how many block u want)
(2) cut to 2.5" rectangle patches
(3) arrange the patches to make nine patch pattern
(4) join them block by block
(5) join the top two blocks, then join the bottom two. later join all of them together
(6) voila ! you now have a piece of mini nine patch-work top (sample measurement : roughly 12 1/2" square). You can later sandwich this piece together with batting/wadding and backing fabric, quilt them together and make it into things like potholder, table topper, mitten etc
