Crazy Mom Quilts has been hosting a 9 patch quiltalong for a while now. I have been admiring all the different 9 patch quilts everyone has been making and posting on flickr. So when she decided to run a second quiltalong...I was in!! I know I'm not going to be making one 9 patch block a day, nor will I probably make 70 of them, but I will have sashing!!!! As you may have realized if you are a regular reader of my blog I am a little bit obsessed with colour! So this 9 patch quilt will be another colourful quilt.
I'm also experimenting a little with the 9 patch block and changing it around a little.
I love the pattern that is forming when using 3 colours in each block instead of the usual two. More of an L shape rather than an X.
I'm thinking I will gather each 9 patch into a group of four, surround them in a raspberry sashing, then a green sashing then an aqua sashing....could turn out to be a hideous riot of colour and useful only for the dog's bed, but I know I'm going to have fun anyway!!!
So here are my first 12 blocks done. Thanks Crazy Mom Quilts for hosting another fabulous quilt along. xo
