    SBG! That is cute! Bright and cheerful. Did you add 3 rows both vertically and horizontally to keep it square? Are you going to keep it?

    Thanks... only added 3 rows on one side, so it's double bed size now, about 62"x80". Yes, I'm planning to keep it... but the other one I make with the rest of the blocks will probably be donated.

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

    SBG, your quilt is lovely! I like it without sashing or alternate blocks. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Thanks~! The quilt they made with their 9Ps is a great example of something you can do with the scrappy and white 9Ps... only on a larger scale.

    I went on a shop hop bus trip last week and bought fabric for my alternate blocks. I washed the fabric yesterday and later this week will cut out my blocks and start working seriously on this project. I plan to make a king size quilt with the blocks. I'll post pics when I'm done with the top.

    Can't wait to see your pictures!

    Anyone else got a top together yet?

    happylab, Great! I'll watch the thread to see when you come back to post a picture of what you are doing. No pressure. lol It's so nice to see what setting everyone uses, and I hope the others all show what they are doing also. Mine is still in three columns, waiting for cooler weather for sandwiching a quilting. My second set of blocks are on the back burner while I'm working on a different quilt top.

    I have been super busy this past month and have not been on here much. I have not seen a new 9 Patch sign up for the whites and scrappy 9 patches. Did I miss it?

    I've been finishing a few UFOs and learning to machine embroidery. I've taken a few Kimberbell classes and boy are those designs super cute. I plan on working on my 9P quilt next. Still can't decide how I'm going to lay it out. Currently, they are all up on my design wall and that looks pretty cool.

    No... we are still taking our summer break. I'll probably open sign ups for the next round in a few weeks, with the due date by the end of Sept. or so. Try subscribing to this thread, so you will be notified of posts. Hoping some more quilts get posted from blocks made in rounds 1 and 2.

    I have been thinking about what I want to do with my swap blocks. I think I will make them into a quilt for a friend. He will be moving far away, so as a sending off gift, I think I will make a quilt. I have been looking at lots of images for some inspiration and I have seen some really nice quilts using 9-patches. I really like this one:

    Unfortunately, I didn't swap enough blocks to make this one. I could make it smaller I suppose. Something to consider.

    I also liked this hourglass/9-patch combination:

    What I think I will settle on is this one:

    The construction is very simple and the overall look is very nice. I think I even have enough 9 patches to pull it off.

    Thanks, Maude, for the eye-candy! I love that first one.
    Who would've ever thought a simple 9 Patch could be done so many different ways?

    I love that first one... the double 9 patch using little 9 patches as cornerstones too. So pretty!

    All of those options would look good.

    Your pictures may be about to disappear... quiltNnan deletes all pictures with copyrights on them. If that happens, maybe you could post links instead?

    If they disappear, I will get the links together. The last picture that is copyrighted has the link under it that goes directly to the source, so maybe it is safe?

    maudeflanagan, The red 9patch in a 9patch with the blue sashing and 9patch cornerstones will take fewer blocks than your other two examples (if finished at the same size). If you like that one best, go for it! You could make it 2 x 3 big blocks (would use only 42 swap blocks), or 3 x 4 big blocks (don't want to do the math on that lol). You can always add a border or two to make it bigger. You might like to do the math on how many blocks you will need for the setting that you choose before you decide/or start cutting. :-) If you come close on swap blocks - to pattern - to finished size, you could always sew a few more 9patches if you haven't enough. Decisions are limitless! :-)

    To me it looks like the first quilt uses smaller 9ps than ours... but you can still use that idea and make a bigger quilt.

    Maude, I am like you. Less is more. I will be using my 9 patches in a simple quilt like the one you did. I
    am going to a Quilt Retreat in a couple weeks and hoping to work on it there. My third child will be getting married on September 1st and I feel like I will get my quilting life back. This is the third child to get married within a year's time and the other two were married out of state so I have been a busy lady with family weddings this past year!

    Wow, you do sound busy, Aborning. Three weddings in a year... Holy smokes! Hopefully you will be able to catch your breath and some well earned sewing time when it's over.
