Nine-Patch Quilt-Along

I have been spending some time with my Nine-Patch Blocks from Crazy Mom's One A Day Quilt-Along. As part of this Quilt-Along I set out to make one nine-patch block a day, and although I was not able to commit myself to this task, I have still ended up with almost 40 blocks.

After much deliberation (read procrastination!) about the quilt layout I have decided to take a different tack.

The initial plan for these Nine-Patches included white sashing strips in between the blocks. Instead I have made some alternating blocks.

Above is a sneak peek of the Nine-Patches and the other block. More pictures when the quilt top is ready.

  12. Were your ears burning about 12 hours ago. I was talking to the leader/teacher of a Color Play group I recently joined at a local quilt shop about your use of color! I still cannot get over that beautiful triangle quilt! Can't wait to see more of the nine patches.
