My wall still looks the same as last week as the week before. :(
Last night I did do a few 9 patch blocks because I wanted to sew on the machine and I did some more tonight. Not many but a few, some only need to be assembled together and also I cut some more fabric for tomorrow :)
My very first large quilt was a nine patch done for my second son. ( don't remember why it was not for the first son!) Here he is with his black quilt. He loved black, still does! The nine patch are made in red, orange, yellow, green and blue. It shows well on the picture but the scanner didn't do a very good job with it. (This young boy with the sun in his face is now 18 years old and 6 feet tall! Oh my time flies!)
Now, what will I do will all my little nine patch ?
I am in love with this picture.
Found this on Google search and I want a quilt like this. I will put more 9 patch in the sashing ... of course! While I was pulling out the fabric for this one I remembered a magazine I've bought a long time ago (2006) and haven't made one quilt from it yet. So I decided it was about time I use it.
LOVE the quilt on the cover! So, of course I want to do this one too. All the blocks in this one are different. Don't know if I'll be able to achieve that.
There is also this one I love ...
and this one ...
and this one ...
and ... well the entire magazine is about nine patch quilts! So much inspiration and fun. At this rate, I think I'll be making nine patch blocks for the next few years lol . For the moment, I'm sticking with the two first ones and we'll see for the others.
There is a third nine patch quilt I want to make but I didn't ask the blogger if I can borrow her picture so I will keep this one quiet for the moment.
So now you know why I have the urge to make a ton of little 9 patch blocks! Hope you too find some inspiration somewhere that makes you run to your stash and sew like crazy!
P.S. Yesterday, I have also spoiled myself and baked myself a Shoo Fly Pie. oh mmmmm ! (Here's to you Fiona! ) :D
