Nine patch swap blocks are together!!

 I participated in a nine patch swap with Barb, who blogs HERE.  ( By the way, she has a lot of really cool nine patch quilts on her blog right now!!) At long last, I have my blocks all together!!  It is a windy day, but I tried to get a shot outside anyway.  The quilt is four x six rows, so the top is cut off.
 The corner stones are leftovers from another project, so I used them here.  Now on to the borders!  I have no clue about what to so for a border...hmmmmm....
 Valentine's day is very close!  I made a little heart quilt for a friend.  I do love those hearts!!
Another view....before the whole thing blew away onto the lawn!




It seems like the best laid quilt plans that I make really never come to fruition.  I just pick up whatever I want to work on, at the moment, and that is what I do.  It makes it fun, and less like a regimented job, you know??  It is what I do for fun, so I think that is important!!







Have a great day, everyone!!

Your setting is really fun and is a creative way to use the sets of nine patches. Very clever. And , of course, the cheddar makes the blocks the stars.

Love it! I especially love the cheerful yellow in the setting! Great job!

I quilt the same way, that is why I could never get paid to make a quilt. I love your quilt.

You couldn't have picked a better colour for the sashing. It's glorious!! Like a sunrise. I love how you framed every block with a little thin line of darker fabric. It's funny because I was just telling Barb that I had 9 patch on my design wall too. It must be 9 patch season, like pumpkin season, or something lol. I truly enjoy yours and it sparked a little light in my head. I'll try that framing design on mine and see if it works as great as on yours. Good luck with the decisions for the border(s). ;^)

Wonderful setting for your swap blocks, Julie! And I love the use of cheddar.
Sweet little heart quilt.
I'm with you on quilting for fun. I try to avoid making it stressful with deadlines and such.

Great job with the nine patches. It looks great to me just as it is, if the size is big enough I wouldn't add any borders :)

What a great and creative way to set the nine patches. If I can figure out a linky, maybe I'll have a nine patch party. Never have had one. The cheddar gives the patches a whole different look = wonderful!

Karen said...

A unique setting for your nine patches. There are so many things a quilter can do with a simple nine patch block.

Wonderful quilt!
