A challenge?

There is a challenge over at Crazy Mom Quilts to make one 9-patch every day until the middle of the summer. I have joined the challenge ……. because I love 9-patches and I have been waiting for some time to make another blue quilt. So, these will be my leaders and enders and I only need 61 of these blocks to do.

The beige fabrics will be my sashing and I’m just auditioning different shades to determine which value I want and have decided to go with the lighter beige and the big piece is the fabric of choice as there is enough fabric to do my sashings. My plan is to make this quilt entirely out of my stash.

I like this look ..... very cottagey.

So, if you are interested in joining this challenge, join now and start making one a day.

Have a great day!

Keep stitching those 9 patches! The color combo is going to make a nice quilt. Blues, whites, creams are always soothing color combos.

That is a challenge...and you are rising to it very easily.

I will enjoy being by your side as you create. I just hope to spy Hank and/or Ashes during the creative process. I know...

What a good idea, your nine patches look great with that sashing. I've joined in an Autralian nine patch swap so I'm taken care of. There seems to be a lot of nine patches out there at the moment.

Oh boy one nine patch each day? I would get tired of it for sure, I admire you for doing it.
It will be lovely
