Until now!  I had some of this fantastic Heather Ross Itsy Bitsy Spider fabric, that I wanted to combine with some small grey polka dots and tiny yellow polka dots.  I had a little google around and found a quilt block called a disappearing nine patch.  Hm.  sounds intriguing, looks good, and more importantly, looks straightforward!  Gave it a try, and hey presto!
