The pattern I have chosen is from her Leaders and Enders book and is called Rick Rack Nines. I like the traditional scrappiness of the pattern.
I don't, however, intend to make it king sized.......which amounts to 290 five inch nine patches!!! Yikes. I will just stop when I think I have enough. One nice thing is that it doesn't matter, color and value wise, where you place your squares. You can just pick up the squares and stitch.
This is the system I am using.....
Small 3 Drawer Bin
In assembly process.
Finished 9 patches.
I realized that I need to make cutting 2" blocks a priority as I continue to trim my scraps. Even with making the quilt smaller, it is going to take a lot of those babies!!
And finally, this is Sara Ashley yesterday in Gay with Dakota. She is wearing her new horse sweater that Pop and I gave her for Christmas.
A day spent never leaving the house.
Sleeping late with my doggies snuggled close (Blake had something to do early today).
Watching the chickens come running as I approach the pen...they know I spoil them.
