|Stalled (1/4 of the center quilted)|
And piece I did!
Here's Clue #1 of On Ringo Lake, the new Quiltville mystery.
These nine-patches were quick to make. I'm quite sure that subsequent units will be more involved.
The Block Swappers exchange 3.5" nine-patches three or four times a year. Each swap yields 60 nine-patches. I'm always on the alert for interesting ways to set these cute blocks.
Here are the nine-patch variation blocks I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. After I began sewing the sashing to the blocks I realized I won't have enough to sash all of them. I will either make a smaller quilt or improvise.
I found another block that incorporates the mini-nines. It's by Sherri Bain Driver and was published in McCall's Quilter's Workshop, a 2011 special edition. I took photos of a block in progress so you can see how it's put together.
Four 2-5/8" squares, two dark and one light 3-3/8" squares, and a 3.5" nine-patch.
Pieces laid out.
If you try this, let me know!
Meanwhile, I'm adding Quiltville to the Monday link up line-up that includes
