This is one of my projects for the next few weeks.
1 1/2" strips to make 3 1/2" blocks.
The 3 1/2" blocks will combine to make 9" double nine patch blocks. These will combine to make this:
I am using this pattern as a reference. The quilt needs to finish as a double so I have to increase the size of this top. I just keep cranking out little nine patches so that I will have lots and lots.
I am at the point now that I can start piecing some large blocks so I need to cut some plain squares. I am using 30's reproductions and my favorite Kona. I love quilts make out of Kona they end up really snuggly. This quilt has been commissioned for a Christmas gift so it is important that I really work quickly on it. I'll let you know how it goes.
I also have backing and top on the frame. Maybe Olivia and I can get some quilting done on that this week too. I sure hope so.
Have a great week. ( I hate standard time--I want daylight savings time back!!)
