Hi Everyone! I was reading a newsletter from one of my LQS and they mentioned that they and many shop members were participating in "The Nine Patch Project". Hmmm... well my curiosity was piqued so I went to the Facebook link they provided and to check it out.
Here's the deal, you make 1 nine patch block any size each day using fabrics from your stash. This particular project is running June 1 to August 1. They are posting pics of their blocks on that Facebook page. What a fun casual summer sewing project.
I was going to join in and play catch up BUT then I said to myself, "self, we could do this on the board and everyone could have fun with it. Nine patch is easy and all levels of quilters here can participate." So what do y'all think?
Here are the links so you can read about it. The blog that started it is-
The entries that refer to the project are May 4th and June 1.
The Facebook page is-
I thought we could start ours June 15th and run thru August 15th so no one has to catch up. You can do them anyway you want 1 a day, the week's worth in a day, whatever you want, it's a no pressure thing the goal is to have 1 for each calendar day.
Ok, so who wants to play?
This sounds like a fun project... I will try to keep up with it :D:D:D
sounds fun........... could have a cool quilt by the end of summer... I'm thinking........oh sure why not..... I'm in.
What size block? Do we make this a swap after we're finished?
No it's not a swap. Just an easy way to make a quilt. a couple wall quilts, table runners, whatever. You pick the size you want to work with. I am thinking when I am done it will be a Christmas present or presents.
I'm in!!!! Sounds like fun. I have 2 quilts for Christmas and this could possibly help me out!!!!
Maybe you should contact one of the Moderators and request that this be posted in the other area as well. Like the BOM, etc.
Sure, why not!!!! I'm in...and off today...and then I won't have to work on any of the projects I've already started, I can start a new one!!!!! Whoo HOO!
I was not sure exactly where to post this. If a Moderator thinks it should be in a different place I can repost.
Count me in. I think I'll use up some of my Christmas fabric. Sounds like fun.
