More Fun 9-Patch Ideas

I've been having a lot of fun with the 9-Patch Project. It's and easy goal....just one 9-patch block each day of the summer. I didn't get one made over the weekend and just made up a couple of extras the following evening. I'll be going to Yellowstone National Park soon for a family reunion and I'll make some extras before I leave and some extras afterwards and plan to be all caught up.

Several of my fellow Quilt Shop Owner buddies are also promoting the project. We often "borrow" from each other's blogs and newsletters (we're friends, right?). So today I'm sending you to my friend, Karen Snyder's blog (Annalena Land) for a couple of neat 9-Patch related posts.

You may have heard about the Disappearing 9-Patch...Well here's just one pic.

Click here for a tutorial on the "Disappearing 9-Patch." There are so very many ways to set your blocks...Karen has shown several.

And then several years ago on the Sunshine Quilt Guild list I learned how to make two 9-Patch blocks at once. It's fun and easy.

Click here for Karen's tutorial on the "2-fer 9-Patch." Have fun! I'd love to see your blocks too.

Love those 9-patch blocks. You'll have a pretty nice quilt if you do one every day this summer :o) Will be looking forward to seeing the completed quilt -

Thanks for the linky love. I having so much fun experimenting with the humble nine-patch and seeing what great variations I can come up with. The possibilities seem to be endless.
