Every where I look I keep seeing 9 patch quilts today. So I take that as a big push/nudge from my quilting muse :) And so, the 9 patch is next up.
This photo is how I began thinking I would do the layout. I was thinking of adding appliques in the plain squares or along the side.
So I began sewing a few groups of 3 together and threw them up on the design wall. Oops... I put them up in a straight set......easier than a diagonal setting. So maybe I will do it this way.
Then Bonnie Hunter shared this vintage 9 patch she found while antiquing. It is on point setting. Her photo that I snitched....please don't shoot me. The link will take you to her post.
All this to say, I am so confused! I went to my Pinterest board for 9 patch quilts. I thought I would easily, and completely, be sure which layout I wanted. HA! I have close to 90 blocks stacked up, so I may just make one quilt, and make more blocks for another. I probably should stick with my first idea....that is usually best.
Sharon at Vroomans Quilts.....was the culprit.
A few goodies came my way....her guild's cookbook---which is already in service in my kitchen, a pair of floral (squeal:) fat quarters, and a calendar from the Barn Quilt Trail in her area. Love all things quilting. And love special treats! Thank you, Sharon.
We are settling in for a colder weekend.....I think that's a good time to bake some bread between 9 patches. Happy stitching.
