Introducing MODERN D9P Quilt Pattern

When I first introduced my Modernized D9P (Disappearing 9 Patch) concept back in the Summer of 2012, I never could have imagined all of the buzz that would follow.  I have seen so many quilts made using my tutorial, some of which you can find on my Inspired By My Patterns Pinterest board; yet I imagine there are a lot more of them out there, just waiting to be discovered.

When I would teach my techniques at workshops, many of the students would request an actual pattern at the close of day. While a pattern was in the works, life sort of had other plans; though I'm pleased to say that it is done, published and finally ready for you.

So, without further delay, here is MODERN D9P.

MODERN D9P Quilt Pattern #modernd9p #modernizedd9p #quiltpattern #kristydaum



The pattern has been written to include 3 different sized quilts:

Size A ( 45 1/2" x 65" )

Size B ( 65" x 78" )

Size C ( 78" x 91" )

You can purchase the PDF pattern from my PayHip shop.  The paper edition will be available in the coming weeks via my distributors.

The cover quilt was pieced by my Mom, Karen Daum using various black and white prints from her stash, and a handful from mine. The quilting was done by Rachel from Stitched in Color.

If you have made a quilt using my tutorial, or this pattern, please be sure to send me an email or tag me on Instagram...and don't forget to use the hashtags #modernd9p and/or #modernizedd9p

Thanks for letting me rave about my newest finish.

Let's Catch Up

2017 was a whirlwind; which has left this blog neglected for way too long.  While this site will undergo a little renovation later this year, that is a conversation for another time.

In the meantime, let's catch up...

2017 was the year that I finally stepped down from my position as President of the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild.  I held that position for 7 years, and while it was bittersweet, it was certainly overdue. The organization was left in excellent hands, and I look forward to returning as a member in a couple of months. If you are in St. Louis, definitely go and check the guild out...you won't be disappointed.


Quilting took a back seat for much of last year, while my "day-job" and family took precedent. It has taken me a long time to find my joy again in needle and thread; but I'm happy to report that it is going very well.

My most ambition project has been making a Pine Burr Beauty quilt; which has been on my Quilty To-Do list before I even knew what that was.  You can check out my progress on Instagram; but for now, I'll leave you with this beloved image of the nearly complete quilt top.

Introducing POINT OF VIEW Quilt Pattern

Today, I'm happy to announce that POINT OF VIEW is now a stand-alone pattern; which you can purchase in my shop. I first blogged about this quilt in early 2015, as it was the quilt that I contributed to the QuiltCon magazine.

POINT OF VIEW Quilt Pattern // Kristy Daum #quiltpattern #quilt #quilting #modernquilt #sewing


Making POINT OF VIEW a stand-alone pattern was my intention for quite a while; but life got in the way.  As I am putting the finishing touches on my Quilt Market preparations this week, I wanted to be sure and get this one completed and off of my To-Do list.  

The instructions allow you to make a quilt which measures 60" x 72"; which is a nice lap-size quilt. 




POINT OF VIEW looks great in lots of color combinations, and my pattern even includes a separate coloring sheet allowing you to decide color placement.

Head on over to my shop to pick up a PDF copy.  Paper copies will be available in a few weeks, so you can ask your local quilt shop if they carry it later this month. 

When you make this quilt, please be sure to send me a photo or use the hashtag #pointofviewquilt
