Then I make two strip sets like this:
I subcut the strip sets in 2 1/2'' cuts:
And then I sew them back together to make two nine-patches, one the opposite of the other:
It takes about 10 minutes two make the two, and then I put them aside in a small bin. I have been doing this for about three weeks now. I counted them tonight and I already have 42 of these little buggers done! Now here`s the challenge: Anyone who wants to join me in making these little patches is more than welcome! Wouldn`t it be great to see what everyone does with 100 or so of these? How would you sew them together???? The possibilities are endless: Here is one way I thought I could set them. When you put them one above the other, it makes for a nice rectangle that could be set with sashing and a cornerstone:
Or how about set on point with a background fabric for the squares and the set-in triangles:
Or I could make it completly scrappy and just sew one nine-patch alongside another randomly. There would be no need to add yardage... What would you do with a whole pile of scrappy nine-patches??????
If you care to join me in this little quiltalong, please leave a comment. I would love to know who is in with me....
