Motivation Friday

Friday, December 4, 2009
Almost forgot to post! This week I was going to quilt the 9 patches--yup, got that done!

Not the best picture, but after I get the binding made and on I will try to remember to take another. This was a quilt-a-long with crazymomquilts.

I plan to be a "binding queen" over the weekend, so should catch up on those goals. And I have a customer quilt loaded on the long arm--so things are looking good.

Remember a few days ago I was rootling in my sewing room looking for a book? I never found the book, but instead I found these----

Yes, more 9 patches! I think these were from an internet swap several years ago, and decided I would set them similarly to the tan 9 patches, but stagger them. I am using some pale peach fabric for sashing. It's going to be a big quilt, I think without any borders it close to 90x100". I think there are 86-8" nine patches. I like 9 patches, and I like them best set in straight rows marching down my bed. This will make another UFO gone, stash used up, and a quilt finished. Now if I could just find my book!

I like 9-patches, too--the scrappier, the better!

Boy, you have been busy! Just reading about all the quilts you have finished recently makes me tired! They are beautiful!

The nine patches look great! I sort of got behind on my pile.

Amanda Jean said...

I really love 9 patches, too. Your quilts look great!!!
