    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-
    http://www.karensayssew.blogspot.com/

    The entries that refer to the project are May 4th and June 1.

    The Facebook page is-
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/9-Patc...16885848345468

    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?

    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.

    I was not sure exactly where to post this. If a Moderator thinks it should be in a different place I can repost.

    I can get the top done, but I wouldn't get the whole quilt finished anytime soon because I'm a handquilter & I have several other quilts that I need to finish first. Is this ok? Let me know! Otherwise, PUT ME IN COACH, I CAN DO IT, I KNOW I CAN!!!

    I haven't joined anything on the Board yet, this sounds like an easy start...not too scary. So sure let's go for it.

    The idea is to make 1 nine patch block a day starting June 15 and the last one you make will be August 15. That should give us 62 blocks (if my math is right). After that you can assemble them anyway you like. Quilt tops, wall quilts, tote bags, table runners or toppers. Sash them, make then into D9P, add solid blocks between, anything, be creative.

    You have however long you want to put them together. By the end of this time you should have enough blocks to put together one of those "UH, OH! I need a quick gift or get a jump on Christmas presents or baby quilts.

    I know the people who started this and some of the shops will get theirs together in time for a potluck or picnic together. Since we can't do that we can take our time.

    I just thought this would be a fun thing for us to do here since we have quilters of every skill level and everyone can do it.

    I have vowed to stop buying fabric until I use up what I have. This will be a great project to use up my stash. Thanks for this I'm going to try. :)

    this actually sounds like a good stash builder. Being a new quilter, I could easily get a couple of yards of different fabrics to have on hand. I will even have a sewing room set up by the start date!!! count me in!

    I've never tried something like this...I'm in. I can't wait to get home and make todays block. I don't have a huge stash so it should be interesting.

    I made a New Year's resolution to use my stash and only buy what I need to complete a project. Stash first. Well, let me tell you how that is working for me.

    I am a fabricholic, the first step is admitting...

    Anyway, this will be a good way for me to use my stash and scraps.

    Oh, I guess I'm jumping the gun. We start June 15th. Well I will go home and start thinking at least. Will there be a reminder?
