I've set a goal to do a large size charity quilt each month of 2009. So far, I've done the same pattern for two QOV quilts, but in different colors, for January & February. I was ready for a change for March, and began a 9-patch variation using up more solid scraps....I seriously think these solid scraps are reproducing in the box when I'm not looking!
First, I made a bunch of scrappy 9-patch blocks (squares cut 4 inches) with the center square always being black.
Next, I cut the block in half both up & down and side to side....my blocks were 11 inch, so I came out with (4) 5.5 inch blocks.
I flipped the blocks up on the upper right & lower left side and sewed together my new block
This is what I can out with...no borders yet. Right now, it measures about 50 X 50 inches.
The next decision....is this my March quilt to charity or does my patient Hubby get a new quilt after 8 years? I went to put the Log Cabin quilt (showed in the previous post) back on the bed & noticed it has some major wear & tear places. Today is Hubby's birthday, so maybe a new quilt is in order!
In Closing: March is just a day away...any special goals for you? I am working on staying up with my planned projects, as well as doing a couple of fabric experiments I have shelved for a while. Please, share your plans............
