I’m still undecided on what to start for a new quilting project, so I figured I’d turn my attention to the disappearing nine-patches I’d sewn at Mom’s last month.
They needed to be cut and disappeared. The cutting part is pretty simple, you just slice each nine patch in half both ways.
Then you turn the pieces to create a new design. There are a number of different ways you can turn them.
But in the end, I chose the layout that creates a whirlygig in the middle.
In a short afternoon of sewing, I had all the block cut and reassembled, and then even sewn together in the full layout.
It’s now just a wonderful jumble of beautiful fall colours. Because of the crazy whirly-gigs, I’m calling this one “Autumn A-Whirl”.
Of course the top isn’t done yet. It needs a border or two. But that will have to wait for the next batik sale at Lens… those batiks are beautiful, but spendy!
