New Quilt Blocks ~ Nine Patch Variations

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.

Cheep Talk ~ new Fabric Collection from Connecting Threads

It’s not often that I fall head over heels in love with a whole fabric line…but I just received my copy of the new Connecting Threads catalog and look what was on the front cover.

BIRDIES ON A WIRE

CHEEP TALK…100% super combed cotton grown in the U.S. – 45″wide.

I’m definitely going to be buying some fabric in this line! It makes me smile.

Here are some more of the quilt kits that they made up….the Flying Geese pattern is one of my favorites, I like to add it into a lot of my quilts.
