    Mirror image 9-patch blocks

    I love, love, love the lowly little 9-oatch & found the neatest tutorial for making mirror image 9's! I hope you like it as much as I do!!!

    This is such a neat technique. I had done um-teen of these using scrappy 6 inch squares. It was just part of my mindless sewing when I wanted to relax. We divided the sets in half by randomly selecting the + and - blocks. By combining these with plain ecru squares we made a pretty quilt for charity. Sorry, no pix :-(

    I like making 9 patches, but I start with a large 4 patch. I usually use 6" squares. You end up with a 9patch with a large center, but they go together quickly and are so cute in a baby quilt.

    Thanks, both ladies, for these techniques - I have to teach new blocks at our guild meeting and these "Old done new" ideas are going to be great!
