9 Patches

My guest bedroom has a couple of patch quilts.


I made the blocks and then tried to figure out what to do with them. I tried setting them different ways and finally came up with these two quilts.

The yellow one is hand quilted. The blue one is tied.

I learned the hard way not to bias cut the outside half square setting blocks they caused me lots of trouble. The outside is kind of wavy oh well next time.

I love what you have done with the border of the blue quilt with the 9 patches within the 9 patches :)

Lizzy,
Great quilts. Do you hand piece and hand quilt a lot? I've been teaching myself to do both, but haven't finished a project yet.

Welcome to the world of blogging. I just started mine the other day too.

What a great way to use 9 patches! I would have never guessed it at first glance but b/c you wrote about it then I could make out th e9 patches in the yellow quilt. Will have to jot that idea down for use later on some 9 patches I have been collecting... :c) ~Bonnie
