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!
