Nine patchtastic

A work in progress.

My first nine patch quilt. 


 Lovely crisp white cotton on a sunny day.  I wanted to keep this quilt simple so the blocks are alternated.  It will be 9 x 9 6 inch blocks.  All the blocks are completed and pressed.

Just need to be sewn together for the quilt top!!!



Making 50 plus nine patch blocks was daunting for me!  It is so nice to see how they have come together though.  This is looking like being a quilt for my daughter's bed at the moment! 
Hoping to hand quilt it as the others.

Up and running!!

Hooray!  Finally up and running!  My very own blog for journalling my quilting projects.




I have been contemplating it for ages and have now finally taken the plunge!


Please dive in with me if the notion (lol) takes you.  I want to share my quilting experiences with everyone.


The ups and downs, the beauties and the beasts, and the joy that patchwork and hand quilting brings me. 








I want to be inspired by others and their works too!  




Next post - my nine patch bed quilt in progress.
