Back to Quiting

Here is what I've been working on the most -- my wonky 9 patch.  This has been time intensive to make this.  The directions failed to mention that you must use the pieces in the same direction.  And, each piece needs to be marked with a quarter inch on each corner. And the finished blocks only go one way or so it seems! Oops, I've got two of the same block next to each other.   This is what it looked like this morning.  As of this evening I only have 1 more to make if I go with a 4 x 4 setting.  I'm planning to put it together tomorrow and then decide if I need another row and/or borders.  

Suze at The Thread and I has inspired me to try the Wonder Wallet again (from Lazy Girl Designs). I tried making one this summer and some how screwed it up.  I finally had to dump the whole thing.  Next time I'm reading the directions better!  That will be a great fast project -- if I can do it right!  

My Nolting 18 should be coming in sometime during May.  I've got several tops ready to be quilted but I need to get the backings ready.  So that should be moved to the top of my list along with acquiring some batting.

  1. I've never seen the wonky nine patch before. It almost looks like tumblers. Great Job.

    Raggs is a great looking dog. I know that he likes his new home.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
