All patched up

As Leader & Ender blocks are wont to do, my nine patches have been piling up. It was time to take a break, lay them out and see where I’m at!

They are about 10.5″ big, so they build up to a good size quilt quickly. As you can see I have 19 done so far, but I’ve still got quite a few scraps to work with, so I think I can at least get a twin-sized quilt out of them.

I don’t know about you, but I think there’s something just so charming about a nine-patch block. I may be a bit biased – the very first quilt mom made when I was about 7 years old was a nine patch. I’m a little sentimental about it.

For this one, I think I’m going to do a nice, thin black sashing – something simple to let all those scraps really shine!

    I love a nine patch too. It was the first one I ever made also. The one that I am hand quilting now is a nine patch in its own paper pieced way I suppose but the scrappy ones are always the best.

    That is going to be a beautiful quilt! I think the black makes it look more modern. Of course, Burton was needed as an accent since he contrasts so well with those blocks.
