I’ve been looking at different quilting blogs and have come across two that have great tutorials…in which these two have caught my eye. Cluck Cluck Sew’s Disappearing Nine Patch and Oh, Fransson’s Crazy Nine-Patch.
I really like the blocks! Now I just have to figure out how I want to place them into a quilt. :)
For the Disappearing Nine Patch, I used two Moda’s Charm Packs that I’ve had for some time…Recess by American Jane. It makes a big block…about 13″.
For the wonky Crazy Nine Patch I picked out 9 different fabrics in the Cheep Talk line from Connecting Threads that I had bought months ago.
This was a fun block to make…although it was a bit hard to cut through the last two cuts. This makes an 8″ block.
I have five 1/2 yard fabrics from the Woodland Bloom line by Lila Tueller for Moda..I want more. Not exactly sure what I want to make with it yet, but I do know I’d like more fabrics from that line. They are VERY pretty. :)
UPDATE! I found two more pieces in this line here in town…now I have to turn to the internet.
And lookie! Sun hitting Mt. Rose and Slide Mountain this morning! A teaser from Mom Nature…as we’re getting more rain and snow tomorrow. Picture was taken looking out from the building here at work.
