I wish. I sleep and green chiles dance in my head, leaving trailmarks across my tongue.

Got the initial rotary cutting done and am sewing the nines next.

Of course. It doesn't even work real well. I was just being silly.

What you wind up with is a mini variation of YBR. That Steve, is a pattern you might investigate some day, or of course Patrices "Road to Freedom", another fine example of multi-sized and placed blocks she designed herself.

Well, for me it's all worth the thought though. Twisting around ideas to create is something almost par for the quilting course. Besides, itís fun to see what will happen if you throw the switch and just add a bit of lightning.

I just noticed my "strings" are already collecting up. I'd not even given it a thought before, but the string quilt will, out of necessity, happen too. Fun!

Got a few patches done and though a bit frustrating at first, it ended up kind of fun. I gave a go at chain piecing and that was interesting and time saving. The thing with the disappearing 9 patch is that the small squares tended well, to disappear. I was working with three-inch squares, but suggest at least five inches. It will be fun when I've got a couple dozen patches to lay out and play with.

Mostly it was weird cutting up fabric, sewing it together, cutting it up and sewing it again. I really felt the part of a mad scientist gone amuck with fabric. It showing all the promise of a pretty nice quilt.

That is how I made the quadrille twister in my avatar, I really hesitated to cut up the blocks I had just sewn together. It freaked me out but the end result was well worth it.

It's beautiful.

This new quilt should be more colorful than the last, or at least more for a child in my mind. Blues and yellows in abundance; I wonder how I'm going to quilt it though. Very small no doubt!

I saw this technique on another site http://quiltingpassion.com/blocks/pieced/ninepatchvariation/index.html.

I tried it with an existing 9 patch that I made from scraps when I first learning to make a 9-patch. I'm very new to quilting. Just started this year.

I really like it and can't wait to make a lap quilt out of it.

Well...

I put six together and they got a little wonky, but the technique is interesting. The hardest part is ending up with a lot of cornering squares at odd places and the differing fabrics of course stretching at different paces. Still it was a fun experiment and I might go ahead and use it. Does it look too off?

Could a lot of the flaws be hidden with an in the ditch quilting pattern?
