Nine patches rule!! And Happy Valentines!!

Hey everyone!! Here are all the nine patch/churn dash blocks...I have selected the sashing fabric, after a wonderful suggestion from Helen in the UK...I tried red first Annie...the red I had kind of took over the blocks...I love red, though! I did, however, want all your nine patch blocks, and a bunch I made too, to show up and shine!! I found this blue...it was from a backing fabric, very wide...leftover, and it seems to work!!
Then I found the Cheddar...is it too much? Pretty bright!! Are the blocks showcased enough?? I like it though...and have a scrappy border planned too.

I have a bunch of these blocks cut...I have to be careful, or I will have a ton of the same blocks, and will not have zig-zags!!


Have a wonderful day, each one of you...I hope you have some sewing time just for you. Happy Valentines to each of you!!

I am just loving what you are doing with your nine patch and churn dash blocks! The blue border looks to be a great choice! I think the Cheddar blocks work well. Especially if you are going to do a pieced border of some sort. :0) Happy Valentines Day!

Terry said...

I think the blue and cheddar set the blocks off perfectly! :0)

I love this quilt and am tempted to make a mini sized version. I adore the sashing and the cheddar is just the right amount of zingy cheese...! Nicky

Great to see that my suggestion of blue worked for you. The cheddar looks great with it!

Hi Julie,
First of all, what a lovely, lovely plaid scrappy quilt you have as the first photo at the top of your page... Is there a pattern for this quilt? If so, where could I buy it? I have two HUGE bins of plaid fabric. My sister and I are making 5 scrappy plaid throws (twin size) for our 5 brothers this coming Xmas. We already have 4 tops done and I am working on the 5th. But we both have a gazillion plaid scraps to be used up...
Congratulations again, for such a doozy of a quilt!
Pat
